Storyline

Roy Arnie has a dream. One day he will run his own circus and conquer the world. Today, however, he is a stable-hand working in the Circus Stromowski, a miserable Russian big top, run by a hopeless alcoholic fourth generation circus director, Igor Stromowski, and full of useless has-beens and tired animals, which will only perform under the influence of narcotics. Roy Arnie invites his old buddies Gaz and Odd, and their sidekick Flea, to come and work at the circus, and while work is an alien concept to Gaz and Odd, the appearance of an irate criminal who they are indebted to decides the issue. At the circus, Roy Arnie introduces the trio to the star attraction: Jimmy the elephant. Formerly a great sight, but after 20 years at the circus he has become addicted to every drug under the sun. He performs in a purple haze, counting down the days until someone realizes he will be more useful as a set of piano keys. Roy Arnie keeps him going with a complex regime of uppers and downers to ...

Free Jimmy - Slipp Jimmy Fri
19 October 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I have not seen the English version of this movie, but the Norwegian one rocks. The maker of the movie is the brother of Jokke (Joachim Nielsen) Who was a famous Norwegian rock artist who died in 2000. The movie is much about drugs, and it is presented in a very humorous way. You can actually feel the drug community atmosphere, and the characteristics are awesome. The voices are the same who does the voices for "To Trøtte Typer" (Two Boring Guys). It's a masterpiece. It might not be the best movie for a nonorwegian, since there is some local humor involved (the samimafia, and the moosehunters from Trondheim).

But still a masterpiece. Though you got to be a bit crazy to like the humor, and it helps if your often in a torpor.
