Storyline

Little Oddemann uses every means available to find Jesus, including his slingshot. The film takes us to Norway in the late 30's, where we meet a series of burlesque and humorous characters, whose antics convince Oddemann that growing up may be a bad idea. Yet Oddemann finds there are certain rewards to being grown-up, such as partying and chasing women, that merit closer examination. The film is based on a book of childhood reminiscences by beloved Norwegian poet and Jazz lyricist Odd Børretzen. Written by Stein Leikanger <leika@online.no>

the older you are, the more you will enjoy this film
7 April 2001 | by (Coronado, CA) – See all my reviews

I suspect the older you are, the more you will enjoy this film because it takes you back to childhood. The longer the trip, the greater the reward. A gentle smile, a warm memory or a frightened moment, an anxious time...all there for you, again -- through the eyes, heart and soul of a young child. If you don't feel this movie, you are not just missing a movie, but have forgotten your childhood. Hope you can find this movie, and this time of your life.
