Monty Python in Norwegian
14 April 2008 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

We did not exactly invent the wheel here in Norway, but this humor is Norwegian. The guys making it, was very much inspired by Monty Python.

In this miniseries you will find a lot of abstract humor which don't make a lot of sens, but that is the humor in it.

The story is about 3 brothers who are named Gaus, Roms and Brummen Dal. Dal mean valley and Gaus, Roms and Brummen are valleys in Norway. The 3 brothers are going on an adventure to find the lost explorer Professor Drøvel who explored the unexplored area Overfloden, north for Oslo. As the story goes on there are a lot of gags happening in between the scenes. Doors in the middle of the forest, leading to towns, stores and gags.

If you are a person who like Monty Python, this is maybe something for you. Else if you are a person who needs to get the joke explained, stay away.
