Ole Giæver og co-regissør Marte Vold får knallgode kritikker i både Screen, Variety og Hollywood Reporter etter verdenspremieren på Toronto film festival. Alle de tre anmelderne i de toneangivende bransjebladene hyller Giæver for de sjansene han har tatt i filmen, både foran og bak kamera, og mener resultatet er noe man sjelden ser på kino.

”A Walter Mitty-esque comedy drama set against the stunning backdrop of the Norwegian great outdoors, Out Of Nature (Mot naturen) is an engaging delve into one man’s troubled sub-conscious as he tries to tackle the issues – mainly sexually orientated – haunting his life”, skriver Mark Adams i Screen.

”Notable thanks to a rather distinctive naked jogging scene, the film has a dry wit to balance its off-beat story, with co-director Ole Giæver also going in front of the camera and impressive as protagonist Martin (that self-same naked runner) who carries pretty much the entire storyline. It is a physically demanding role – with most of the dialogue interior – that he handles pretty impressively”.

Varietys kritiker Dennis Harvey mener det er utrolig krevende å hale i land et konsept som Giæver her har lagt opp til, ved å være alene foran kamera, ute i naturen.

”It’s very tricky to pull off something as conceptually minimalist as “Out of Nature,” which makes this nearly one-man-show by writer-director-star Ole Glaever all the more refreshing in its modest but genuine achievement.

”Near-plotless pic about a dissatisfied man spending a weekend hiking alone is driven by his stream-of-consciousness voiceover, and might easily have seemed pretentious or self-indulgent without the deft, gently comedic touch that Glaever (and longtime collaborator Marte Void, billed separately as co-director) bring to it.”

Hollywood Reporters John de Fore mener filmen eran excellent look at middle-aged ambivalence”.

”An effortlessly penetrating self-portrait of the artist as a doubt-plagued middle-aged man, Ole Giaever‘s Out of Nature plunges into the stream of consciousness of a narrator whose oppressive internal monologue will be recognizable to many viewers who don’t even share his specific concerns. Exploring these incessant thoughts against the backdrop of a solo weekend hike through Norwegian hills, the film capture the reality of many a day-trip that’s meant to clear the head but instead packs it more densely. Funny enough to entertain but serious at heart, the picture has plenty of arthouse potential beyond the fest circuit.”
