Storyline

When is an enemy not an enemy? when is an ally not an ally? The answer to these questions determines the fate of a man. Simon's struggle is played out against the rugged landscape of northern Norway. Raised in a close-knit community, he bears the scars of a childhood haunted by rumors. During World War II, the Russians and Americans become a presence in this remote landscape, which will have far-reaching consequences. Victimized by rumor and Norway's shifting political allegiances, Simon is denied the final reconciliation he longs for with his community and with himself. When the Berlin Wall falls, his life is once more turned upside down. Written by Sofie

Bloody boring. What-what!
5 October 1999 | by (Oslo,Norway) – See all my reviews

This movie is a disgrace, with its stupid plot and endless voiceover of quasi-romantic nonsense, and fish, fish,fish. They eat fish, they make love on top of fish, they scream angrily at fish, they talk to it, and the endless panoramas from norwegian fishing vessels!
