just to add a few words
28 November 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

yes, it is amazing and noteworthy. it is nicely framed by the idea of all the characters stopping by at a gas-station in the middle of nowhere (which was intended as a symbol for Norway itself, according to the producer).

Though it is not always easy to understand each detail, if you are not from Norway, there are enough hints/common features shared by other countries.

Moreover, "Folk Flest..." works on the level of pure entertainment as good as it does on the level of political satire. Therefore, I'd like to encourage you to see the movie if you can.

It won the "Rainer-Werner-Fassbinder-Preis" for best narrative structure at this year's International Filmfestival Mannheim-Heidelberg. (plus the award of the "jury of the international filmcritics")
