Four Hours, directed by 19 years old “Norwegian Tarantino” Andre Rettedal, has just been released on DVD and VOD. The film is a British action comedy filmed in London. It tells the story of gangsters Capone and Tung, whose plan to rob a bar turns out to be much more complicated than expected. When they realise that they will have to wait four hours to get the code to the safe, they hold barmaid Charleene and loser Bob hostage. And, as Capone puts it “We are going to have a lot of fun in these four hours!”
Born on the Norwegian coast, Andre Rettedal always wanted to become a film director. He started writing the script for Four Hours at the age of 15. As soon as he turned 18, he left Norway to London with his grandfather’s suitcase, £3000 in his pocket and a fair amount of trust in his lucky star. He eventually managed to put a team together and completed Four Hours in 6 days. The film was then acquired at the last Cannes Film Festival by Denton Distribution for international distribution.
