Henrik is 35, but he still parties with his high-school buddies like they were in they're 20s. His mother cares for him like he's still a child. And he's in a relationship that's based on goofing around. Now, his girlfriend Tone is pregnant and Henrik has taken a serious job, moved into a prefab duplex, and he's trying to calm down the partying and start behaving like a father-to-be. But as he feels the pressure to mature, and to do it quickly, Henrik's frustrations surface in unforeseen--and hilariously inappropriate--ways.

Favorably compared to the work of directors as diverse as Judd Apatow and Maren Ade (EVERYONE ELSE), THE ALMOST MAN walks a fine line between outrageous comedy and relationship drama, and emerges with a portrait of a couple navigating their new adult responsibilities that all will find relatable.
