The Retired

In 2012 Kolby played the stockbroker father Thomas in the short film “The Retired”. Director Line Torvund depicts the story of the deeply lonely, retired old man Even. He befriends Thomas’ 5-year old son Martin and experiences the unusual joy of unconditioned friendship.

 

But Thomas watches the friendship with fierce suspect. Is the old man not too friendly towards Martin? He forbids Even to ever talk to his son again, to the old man’s great sorrow. He holds a past explaining his interest in the boy – an interest nothing close to Thomas’ idea.
