Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
This film, starring the beloved norwegian entertainer Rolf-Just Nilsen in his late thirties, is especially remarkable for it's snappy, fast dialogue, a real goldmine for lovers of sixties' slang and style. The plot evolves around norwegian pop star Dickie Dons (Nilsen) who is travelling back to Oslo by boat after a tour in Europe. The intrigue involves Dons being beaten into a coma by his drug-dealers and being replaced by a simple but honest sailor, also starring Nilsen. Will the sailor manage to take over Don's secret wife, keep up a star-act and escape future attacks from the drug dealers? The film's tune, played by the Beatniks, is quite fresh and sticks to your mind for several days. "Jeg husker den gangen jeg var i Buenos Aires!!"
