The nadir of norwegian socialist cinema
9 September 2003 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

Lass & geir are to loonies out on the streets of Oslo, facing everyday problems with the society which has turned against them. Extremely boring & silly piece of trash cinema, bad acting, bad camera work etc.

Only positive side is that the film contains real oral sex, something that was cut away on later prints.
