Best Norwegian Movie since ... ever?
6 August 2000 | by (Oslo,Norway) – See all my reviews

For those who don't know: Norwegian filmindustry is very miserable for the moment.Changes have been demanded from media and from the audience. But nothing happens. Until now! Detektor is brand new, it is made by a young crew.The director,writer and the actors as well,are having their debut with this film.The writer,Erlend Loe,is a cult-novelist in Norway. His naive style has captured lots and lots of youngsters, and this movie follows the trend.

The movie is about Daniel Jor,a young shrink,who has a hobby for walking around with a metaldetector.He searches for metallic items in the soil,but maybe he's on the search for more.. (I can't tell)

It's hilarious,it's sad.It's dramatic and thrilling.And on top of it all; it's surprising! Welcome to the movie of the year. And I'm sure it'll be a hit. Maybe beyond norwegian borders as well...
