In case Tarjei’s acting didn’t already seem impressive enough to you… I’d like to point out how the second part of the clip (from 1:43 to 2:56 ) is a one take and a close up. Now, I’m not an expert of cinema and cinematic techniques but I believe it’s quite impressive how he is able to pull of a scene that feels so real in one take and with the camera so near his face.
