No punches pulled coming of age story,cold as ice (or Norway)
This film is in color but it felt black and white. Maybe because it is set in Norway but maybe because it's meant to be (and is) a cold, realistic vision of a young boy struggling with adolescence. I understand that Kornstad was an amateur; if so he gave an incredible performance, one that seemed to capture the director's vision. This story will probably not appeal to the viewer looking for the usual comedic coming of age tale.
