Greatness.. massively beautiful - and great!
17 August 2001 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

A beautiful movie... pure greatness in every spine of the production, and the star Herborg Kråkevik seduces and melts the audience in a Billy Elliot-esque way... it's just magnificent.

The director Thomas Robsahm has with this movie fulfilled a dream of creating a movie out of this strong story about the wildly organic character Petra... that combines energic acting, state-of-the-art cinematography of striking norwegian nature and a powerful script. It will probably recieve a massive celebration from the press and as maybe the best movie in an already historically successful norwegian filmyear - it will, as it did with me, seduce the people too...

If this picture reaches out beyond our borders in Norway, as it should, you should definately allow yourself this extrordinary experience of pure filmmaking that may redefine the way you look upon... well, many things.

A piece of history... already.
