Superb performances from Wesenlund and Sand in one of the best Norwegian comedies ever.
3 September 2002 | by (Bergen) – See all my reviews

Most people in Norway will agree that Rolv Wesenlund is one of the country's best comedians of all time. The TV-series "Fleksnes" made him a star not only in Norway, but also in Sweden. In my opinion it's therefore a great shame that so many of his fans totally ignored "Norske byggeklosser". Even though the film is a bit stupid at times, the best scenes in the movie really make up for this. Wesenlund is stunning in a number of different roles (a carpenter, an electrician, an annoying neighbour and so on) and together with Bjorn Sand (as the poor guy building a new house for his family) he makes some of the scenes hilarious.
