I had no idea this was actually a parody and expected an horror movie. Well, it's a good movie but not that funny (for non scandinavians at least). 6/10

Life is sometimes rude game: one mistake can buy you ticket to hell.
What I usually can't stand with this type of movie is how fast a nice and clean teenager turns into a Hitler Jr. This movie is no exception: here a maths geek turns into the most hardcore skinhead in Serbia in no more than a few days. Envoyable movie though. 5/10

It was a good idea to give up a concept that worked well with Borat but already started to bore with Brüno. Unfortunatly this movie seems more like a collection of (often very funny) sketches than an actual movie. 5/10

Very original movie with a fantastic cast (what a great surprise to see Rona Hatner here!) but on the minus side, the movie badly lacks rythm and failed to keep me interrested. Kind of Amelie meets Le Havre, if you liked both you will probably like this one. 5/10
