The film was pulled from most cinemas after only five days due to bad box office results. Some scenes were altered and the film returned to cinemas with a new name, "Gutten som kunne fly". (The boy that could fly) See more »
Lakki: Boy Who Could Fly, has got to be one of the strangest films ever made. It concerns a boy dealing with his crazy, selfish parents, who are constantly splitting up, reuniting and badmouthing each other. his mother is a pretty but hilarious wreck of a woman. She continually becomes involved with stupid guys, bringing them home into her and her sons lives. It is funny hearing the way she talks to her son, as if he is a friend, or her equal, and not a 14 year-old. She selfishly becomes involved with her sons gym teacher, a stupid muscle head that has been terrorizing the boy. His dad is no better, irresponsible, a womanizer, totally unsympathetic to his sons needs, or to his pain. Lakki spends his time alone, sometimes meeting the eccentric and crazy characters he meets on the street. One day he discovers small angel wings growing out of his back, that come and go depending on whether he is doing the right thing or the wrong thing. The movie is not a total waste of time; There is some good visuals here, and the characters are interesting. Some might be put off by some of the obvious homo erotic imagery here, which comes across as a bit self conscious and dumb, but actually there isn't a lot of that. The actor Anders Borchgrevink has an odd but interesting screen presence, and his portrayal of the angry teen is energetic and believable, and often funny. And actress Nina Gunke as Lakki's self absorbed mom is hilarious as well as easy on the eye. In fact much of the cast is quite beautiful to look at, and it is indeed a treat to hear the Norwegian language spoken. Recommended for fans of weird cinema only. Check it out, if you can find it.
