Storyline

Simon and Dede are best friends: two aimless drunks who spend their days getting sloshed and any other available time getting laid. Simon is living on unemployment benefits in a trailer parked near his sister's apartment. Dede works at a fish-packing plant on the night shift. Neither man is sensitive, young, or good looking. However, their sang-froid (literally, "cold blood," referring to a quality of imperturbability) stands them in good stead as they go about their seedy lives, picking up one woman and having sex with her on the beach, or when Simon calmly has sex with a prostitute in front of the woman's brother. In the past, a bizarre necrophiliac situation led to Simon experiencing his only sense of what it might be to truly love someone. Written by Ørnås

A great movie with some unpleasant scenes
15 August 1999 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This movie was stopped by censorship so it wasn't schefuled for ordinary show it's in the cinemas i Norway. We saw this at our private Film Club - an arrangement in Norway allowing us to set up films not distributed ordinarily to cinemas, also the totally censored ones. I made this review when I saw only 5 had seen it, and given their response, none had written a comment, so here it is.

It is really a funny film, with a dark undertow. The two poor main persons are friends having lots of fun and trouble. The film changes when they steal an ambulance. They find out that there's a corpse of a beautiful woman in it. I would say the next scenes are unnessesary when it cones yo give this film a story, still, it what you really remember for years afterwards.

Without telling too much, you'll soon enough know that it ends up with one of them falling in love with the corpse. It sounds disgusting, and it is of course, but the film still doesn't show too much of that. The film is well worth seeing, I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

The humor is great, but I must say the film would have been great also without the necrophilia scene. Go see it!
