Ninjababy15

Dir. Yngvild Sve Flikke | Norway | 2021 | 1h 43m | Norwegian w/ English subs | Starring Kristine Kujath Thorp, Arthur Berning, Nader Khademi, Tora Christine Dietrichson, Herman Tømmeraas

Six months after a one-night stand, 23-year-old artist Rakel finds out that she is pregnant. Just as she made to come to terms with impending motherhood, a talking animated infant appears and insists on making her everyday life a living hell. A refreshingly frank and subversive comedy that finds the funny side of facing up to an unplanned pregnancy.

Reviews

‘Any tweeness is tempered by the film’s raunchy sense of humour and frank attitude.’
★★★★ Simran Hans, The Observer

‘There’s nothing more refreshing than a film that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is, especially when the norm is to tiptoe around difficult issues or tie things up in a dishonest little bow.’
★★★★ Emma Simmonds, The List

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
