All norwegians do basically not like norwegian movies. Except for Flåklypa Grand Prix that everybody have seen. But if you look back into the archives you'll find this pearl. This is usually the only norwegian movie you'll read about in the film history. It's very unconvential and very modern. The narrator takes our side and ask the actors all the way. Thereby scenes become surreal and you ask yourself, what am I watching?
To make it short, it's great, even greater than the new french wave that came later that year. And I have never seen any movie similar to this. If you're going to see one norwegian film in your life, see this one.
