Engrossing enough
2 January 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I do not know much about Norway so I have no idea how realistic this movie is. Apparently that country has the highest standard of living in the world so the lives portrayed must not be typical.

But I can say that I thought it was well acted and directed. A worthy achievment in my opinion.
