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
The movie is a collection of eight loosely connected episodes. Each one is dedicated to a norwegian party. Nine directors worked together in the production, yet in my opinion, the integration of the different stories worked better here than it did in similar attempts, for example "Four Rooms".
I am not at all familiar with norwegian politics, but the characterisations of parties are applicable to other countries just as well. The observations on political movements are accurate and they are presented in a very pleasant sarcastic manner.
Surely there are some norwegian specialties, and I certainly missed some of the humour, but even if stripped off any political meaning, the stories are funny and well-told.
