Harald treffer sjøgutten og denger ham opp. Harald har trodd han ikke kan arbeide, men oppdager nå at han er frisk og sterk. Alvilde blir forelsket i ham.

It is a quite good film!!
28 April 2004 | by (Trondheim, Norway) – See all my reviews

Our class saw it many, many years ago, and then of course it was a little booring. But Harald is funny, and Petra is ugly & funny. Alvilde is a sympathic girl who lives with Dobbelt-Petra, and they resign out of the Church, the other "religions" comes on a daily visit to check if their coming to their next meeting. But problems makes them sign in again, and get that child "døpt" as they say in Norwegian...... Harald is a caring and nervous person, but he loves Alvilde so much that he fights "Gjøken", on the street.
