Two young people stand on a street corner in a run-down part of New York, kissing. Despite the lawlessness of the district they are left unmolested. A short distance away walk Maria and Andreas. They are on their first date. In an episodic style the film tells of encounters and love among young people. The stories are set in Cairo, Paris, on the coast of Normandy and in New York. Written by
A film critic in a Norwegian newspaper refused to give the movie a rating. "To give "Dis" a rating of 1 would be to acknowledge this product's right to call itself a movie, and that I will not do." See more »
This film is actually Norways highest grossing film, largely because of the bad rap it's gotten. People flocked to the theatre the way people slow down to look at car accidents. And this accident is worth a look. Sadly, you won't see any heads rolling (it's not that exciting), but what you WILL see is one of the worst films ever made. When it's not boring, it's laughably stupid, which like all horrible movies make them curiously entertaining. I recall a scene, supposedly romantic between the two lead characters, embracing eachother on a street corner when the director for some reason decides to start filming various pieces of garbage in the street; cabbage, kebabs, old greasy liquor bags and so forth. The dialogue is non-existant, you hear thoughts in the characters heads. These thoughts are nothing more than bad poems, so boring that they are hard to pay attention to even if you try hard.
Nothing in this film is worth commending except for it's own laughable incompetance, so if you see it, see it for what it is: a piece of garbage. So bad it's almost funny.
