Skouen's golden comedy
19 February 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This comedy, which translates into "Dad takes gold medal", is the last of Norwegian film auteur Arne Skouen's comedies in a period he would make way more serious films. This came amidst his "troubled- child-trilogy".

This film starts off with dad, a former active sportsman in his youth, are mending his roof, and overhears his kids talking. His 17 year old psychology-loving student has started analyzing his father and draws what we could say is the wrong conclusions. He tutors his siblings in this. What can the father do to prove his son is wrong?

I find the comic timing of Henki Kolstad (the father) and Sølvi Wang (the mother) very good, and Arne Skouen's way of instructing them better than in his more serious last films. Skouen had some actors he liked to use, amongst them Kolstad and his own daughter Synne Skouen, which played in 7 of his 13 films, the last ones. Here she plays the daughter in the house. I liked seen the small roles of Elsa Lystad (as a nurse) and Carsten Byhring (as a chiropractor) in this, as well. Kari Diesen is also a nurse adding to the film. Their comical timing are always superb. The scenes when the father is in for treatment are simply fabulous, and adds a star to my rating.

This is a film which nods to Norwegian Olympic traditions, which added to the popularity of the film when it was screening in the cinemas. Then Skouen already was established as the greatest of all Norwegian film directors, after being nominated for to Oscar for "Nine lives" and being picked four times to participate in the main programme of the Cannes Film Festival, in the fifties.

I think this is Skouen's funniest film, and feel it's a pity he didn't concentrate more on comedies in his latter years.

The film is included in an amazing 16 CD-box with the complete works of Arne Skouen, released on the 100 years anniversary of his birth in 2013.
