Gas station owner, Lasse, spends most of his time rebuilding his old Tiger Moth aeroplane and dreams of one day flying it through the air. He barely notices the strange stories that focuses around his station in the 24 hours before Election Day. A man gets a nasty surprise as he leaves his family in the car to enjoy a quick skinny dip. A cow eats a mobile phone. A lesbian couple looses their child. A blind girl and her brother sells dubious lottery tickets. A boy falls in love with the girl at the gas station. A man picks up an impertinent young hitchhiker. Three girls with engine trouble get help from a man in a pyjamas. Nine old men meet a young girl stuck in a swamp. A movie inspired by eight Norwegian political parties, written by six writers and directed by nine directors. Written by
I usually like political satire, but this was just a borefest. There is absolutely no plot at all, but just random stories which do not make any sense at all and just extremely loosely connected to each others.If I hadn't seen any other Norwegian movies, than I'd stay far away from at least all ""comedy"" that comes from this country. There was 1 hour 22 minutes in my life wasted with one of the most be among the most boring films I ever seen. Surely some people might have a different sense of humor, but when I watch a comedy then I at least except to laugh once and this had just a few attempts that I could except would cause a few giggles. I would definitely not class this as a comedy, what the heck it is, I have no idea of, since I do not consider this "movie" anything else than a random mess of boring scenes that do not go anywhere.
