Watch: Salmer fra kjøkkenet 2003 123movies, Full Movie Online – In post war Sweden it was discovered that every year, an average housewife walks the equivalent number of miles as the distance between Stockholm and Congo, while preparing her family meals. So the Home Research Institute sent out eighteen observers to a rural district of Norway to map out the kitchen routines of single men. The researchers were on twenty-four-hour call, and sat in special strategically placed chairs in each kitchen. Furthermore, under no circumstances were the researchers to be spoken to, or included in the kitchen activities..
Plot: Swedish efficiency researchers come to Norway for a study of Norwegian men, to optimize their use of their kitchen. Folke Nilsson (Tomas Norström) is assigned to study the habits of Isak Bjørvik (Joachim Calmeyer). By the rules of the research institute, Folke has to sit on an umpire’s chair in Isak’s kitchen and observe him from there, but never talk to him. Isak stops using his kitchen and observes Folke through a hole in the ceiling instead. However, the two lonely men slowly overcome the initial post-war Norwegian-Swede distrust and become friends.

Everybody needs somebody sometime…
Imagine your job entails watching the habits of the people in their kitchens, their comings and goings: from the oven to the fridge, from the washing machine to the cupboard… How come? Well, let’s say you’re an employee of an enterprise that’s looking forward to optimize the arrangement of people’s houses to make their life more comfortable (???). You just sit there and watch your assigned “specimen”. No talking, no communication between you and him. Now imagine you’re the “specimen”, and that there’s a man sit on your kitchen observing your behavior!!!

Yeah, it’s such a crazy plot, but it comes in handy for the director to express his message: man is a social creature and everybody needs someone sometime.

A small movie about small people, calm and intimate. It will make you snore by the second sequence if you’re looking for some action… Otherwise, if you don’t mind about contemplative cinema, this movie’s gonna leave you a nice taste in your mouth.

*My rate: 7/10

Review By: rainking_es
Swedish kitchen researchers (!) in the nineteen fifties goes to Norway to explore country bachelors use of kitchen area.
The summary of Salmer fra kjokkenet in imdb places the movie in the “feel good” genre. This may be true for UK citizens, however a swede really gets the shivers alongside with incontrollable laughs while watching this movie.

The horror derives from the fact that since the thirties the Swedish politicians seriously have believed that they were able to shape society with reason and logic. Thus in the movie, there is the “Institute of private homes research”, the object being to develop the most logically structured kitchen, adapted to the average movements of the “normal” house wife.

This excellent movie made in Norway, the neighbouring country of Sweden – which up to 1905 was submitted in a state union with Sweden – makes a very convincing statement about the “swedish mentality”, that is how our welfare state has developed during the past 70 years.

The growing relationship between the aging Norwegian farmer and the archetypical swedish bureaucrat Nilsson. Nilssons job is to observe his delinquent while he is performing the daily chores in the country kitchen, is moving and, I think, quite significant if you’re interested in the nature of mankind – one of Nilssons colleagues comes at him with the a priceless line of speach: “How the f**k can one know anything about ones fellow man, if not speaking to him?” It needs to be said – the obeservators are strongly advised not to interfere with their “objects of research”.

In other words; at one level of Salmer fra kjokkenet provides you with great laughs, if you recognize the type who’s main interest is to grasp control of your behavior, of your life. At another level this is a painful, yes, raw settlement with the swedish “social engineering” so admired by foreigners, at least in the past.

I cannot think of any other movie more worth recommending to somebody who’s interested in what mankind really is, and what caricature she can made into.

This is a movie about how to make friends when every other possibility is exhausted, how to talk man to man, when every way of communication i banned by the “authorities”.
