Arne Skouen is a name that evokes associations. Since the 1930s he worked as a journalist, author, dramatist, columnist, and of course film director. Starting in 1949 and for the next two decades he directed and wrote the screenplays for seventeen full-length films, many of which have had a major influence on the development of Norwegian film. In 1991 his film Nine Lives from 1957 was proclaimed the best Norwegian film, and it is one of the few films from Norway to be nominated for an Oscar.
