Cold Lunch (Norwegian: Lønsj) is a 2008 Norwegian drama film directed by Eva Sørhaug, starring Ane Dahl Torp, Pia Tjelta and Aksel Hennie. It was Sørhaug's début as a director.[1]


The film follows multiple storylines, all set in motion when Christer (Hennie) disconnects the main fuse in his building to save the rent money in his shirt pocket, which he just put in the washing machine.


Reviewers were somewhat split in their assessment of the film. In a review for Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet, Eirik Alver gave the movie a dice throw of five and called it thematically "recognizable".[2] Jon Selås of Verdens Gang gave it only three points, calling it a "uneven mix of ambitious, uncompromising will".[1]
