What happens in the last 90 minutes before a person commits murder? This is the central question in this trilogy of stories about men who mask frustration, emasculation and loss of face with violence.
In an objective style, director-screenwriter Eva Sørhaug weaves the three stories together as musical variations on a theme. The story of the businessman Johan, who arranges his affairs before he prepares an exuberant last supper for his wife; the policeman Fred, who loses control during the weekly visit to his ex-wife and children; the drug addict Trond, who terrorises his young wife and their newborn baby. The spotless houses in which the characters live slowly but surely turn into prisons.
90 Minutes does not answer any questions about domestic and social violence, does not seek psychological explanations, but simply shows the last hour and a half in these lives, which are often terrifyingly close to our own.
