Sofies verden = El mundo de Sofía( Visual )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in Norwegian and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a fair amount of creative license, the screen adaptation of the world famous novel sends the nearly fifteen-year-old Sophie on an extensive journey through time and space. Alberto Knox, the mysterious philosophy teacher, materializes at first on a televised report directly from the Socrates hearings in ancient Greece. Later Sophie meets him in person during a visit to the Middle Ages. Sophie is scared, but thrilled. She becomes hooked on mystery. On history. On big questions and big answers. In between extraordinary travels in time, Sophie discovers an abandoned cabin in the forest close to her home that holds a secret. In a glimpse in a mirror she catches the image of a girl just like herself, but seemingly in a different dimension. Sophie gradually discovers the secret that has brought her to life ... At the turn of the millennium the novel and the film Sophie's World try to put into perspective how man has explained his existence since myths gave way to philosophy. Seen through the eyes of a girl on the threshold to womanhood, the director's ambition has been to create an emotional and intriguing mystery-drama exploring the most essential of all questions: "Who am I?"
