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
On low budget Aune Sand made this (50.000 $) terrible film about love over 4 years - meeting the same people randomly. There's no dialog, but only the young peoples thoughts. The film is full of unintentionally totally comical parts like:
When the film opens with a REALLY long sequence with Siv Stubsveen tossing and turning in the bed for 5 minutes - and then she tell us (in her thoughts) - "I couldn't sleep". The cinema audience just HAVE to start laughing after being so bored!
And e.g. later, when they think (not talk) about the American car which has been driving on dusty American desert roads since the fifties, and it is a car made in the mid-sixties!
The most fun part is actually noticing that Aune himself is wearing the same pair of ripped jeans for the 4 years the film is covering(!).
You'll love the comic in France when Aune enter a coffee shop, randomly running into his former girlfriend (Stubsveen), while wearing Rollerblades, not able to use them. It's REALLY far worse than anything Ed Wood would have made.
OK! I've seen this film 3 times on the cinema, and is probably one of the reasons it became a box office hit. (Norway's biggest compared to the production costs.) All the critic's reviews did set a bottom 1 for this film.
A masterpiece for a film-club, if you want something really bad and unintentional funny. Beware. Aune sand has been filming his Russian girlfriend for the next movie. They split up after the filming!!!
