Silence is golden
3 July 2003 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

SPOILER!!!!! Typical Norwegian eighties movie. Renowned bad sound quality, so typical for Norwegian movies of that era. Depressing locations in cloudy Oslo. Hardly any conversation, a lot of mumbling. Tough subject: young girl gets pregnant, doesn't want to tell anybody, which leads to depression, silence and even more silence and in the end abortion. Now I spoiled it all, which is good...because this movie is bad. Although it was fun looking at the clothes of the actors; a true source of inspiration.
