User Reviews

An admirable attempt. A half-finished product.
6 April 2001 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

The film is in itself an interesting phenomena. The media and the public (in Norway) has been screaming on about how the Norwegian film industry needs a change, and a long comes a film that definitely stands for something new and is thus widely accepted and celebrated, even though the story has obvious faults (but people seemed to get a kick out of it, simply because it was something different).

The film revolves around the 28 years-old psychiatrist, Daniel Jor, who lives with his dominant mother, and spends an alarming amount of time searching for lost things with a metal detector (which reflects on the theme of the film: the things that are hidden in your own and others lives), accompanied by his faithful sidekick, Ronny.

The problem of the film is that it doesn't really have much to say. It has all these loose threads hanging in the air, which is then loosely tied together at the end, but it doesn't really mean much. The character of Ronny is a fitting example. He's obviously just there to provide a comical relief. He doesn't really serve any deeper function. I'm one of those people who like it when a film gives me something to ponder about (after it has ended). Detektor does no such thing. You see it. You laugh a little. But that is really all there is.
