Smart and cruel film about Norway, and our views...
18 June 2002 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

This film, titled FOLK FLEST BOR I KINA, which loosely translated would be; Most people live in China.

This title actually says a lot about the film, and how it sees us norwegians. Norway has 4,5 million citizens, China has way beyond 1 billion. The idea with this film is to have small segments within the film, one for each political party. A collaboration of screenwriters has put the scripts to paper, and 9 norwegian directors has created each of their part of this film.

With so many different creative forces, FOLK FLEST could easily become messy and quirky. But the frame-segment about Lasse, a gas-station owner who only wants to fly, saves the mess. It is a quirky, beautiful story - directed by Thomas Robsahm - that in a fine way connects to all of the other segments.

I'm not going to rave on about each small film within the film, so I am going to say that in general, this is a film with lots of enjoyment! The filmmakers have pinned down very characteristic and almost cruel views on the political parties, but what makes it charming and funny is the way they have used ordinary people to say something about very serious politics.

So, a fine film, but probably totally uninteresting for people outside Norway...
