Not only for Norwegians
10 November 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

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.
