Los Visitantes / Beforeigners

(Español / English)

Van apareciendo súbitamente en Oslo y en otros lugares del mundo grupos de personas provenientes de tres épocas del pasado. La aparición del cadáver de una mujer, una de esos “visitantes”, genera una compleja investigación policial.

(cuyo título original B Los Visitantes eforeigners podría traducirse como extranjeros del pasado) encara ingeniosamente y con abundantes dosis de un humor mordaz, irónico y colorido las problemáticas que se plantean con estos “visitantes” que van siendo incorporados a la sociedad noruega. De este modo, la inmigración, el multiculturalismo, las sectas, los fundamentalismos, la occidentalización, la xenofobia (y la lista sigue) son encarados desde un planteo sumamente original.

Pero todo ello constituye el marco social de la investigación policial del asesinato, llevada adelante por una carismática pareja de detectives: Lars Haaland, un noruego actual (Nicolai Cleve Broch) y Alfhildr Enginnsdóttir, una vikinga “actualizada” (la finlandesa Krista Kosonen). Su vida privada y la compleja investigación, entonces, necesariamente interactuarán con todos esos sectores culturales.

Los Visitantes constituye entonces un logrado híbrido de policial, comedia social y fantástico.

Groups of people from three eras in the past are suddenly appearing in Oslo and elsewhere in the world. The appearance of the corpse of a woman, one of those “visitors”, generates a complex police investigation.

Beforeigners cleverly and with abundant doses of biting, ironic and colorful humor face the problems that arise with these “visitors” who are being incorporated into Norwegian society. In this way, immigration, multiculturalism, sects, fundamentalisms, westernization, xenophobia (and the list goes on) are approached from a highly original approach.

But all this constitutes the social framework of the police investigation of the murder, carried out by a charismatic pair of detectives: Lars Haaland, a current Norwegian (Nicolai Cleve Broch) and Alfhildr Enginnsdóttir, an “updated” Viking (the Finnish Krista Kosonen). His private life and complex research, then, will necessarily interact with all those cultural sectors.

Beforeigners is then a successful hybrid of police, social comedy and fantasy.
