Hamer is the owner and founder of the BulBul Film Association, established in Oslo in 1994, and ha been called the Norwegian film auteur, due to his film language and how he tells his stories. Film historian Peter Cowie has compared Hamers characters with Jacques Tati. There’s no doubt Hamer will be standing as one of the most important Filmmakers and a leader of the New Norwegian Wave that started in the mid-nineties. (IMDb.com)
