Exceptional move. Extremly funny and romantic
14 October 2002 | by (Bergen Norway) – See all my reviews

funny movie about a girl from Stavanger thats looking for her old boyfriend. Lots of cute girls. And very good actors. A movie for everyone. good story and plot. One of the best movies made in Norway ever! Lots of good music. The only bad thing to say about the movie is that its partitially in black & white
