Storyline

Anna lives with her father Karl someplace in the outskirts of northern Norway. Karl killed his ex-wife and threw her newborn colored child into the sea when he discovered that she obviously had been unfaithful. Now Karl is being haunted by her ghost and is developing a serious drinking problem. Anna is looking for the love of her life, but there aren't many bachelors around - until they discovers another small family on the other side of the mountain. They meet a semi-alcoholized widow on Karl's age, her son Peder, and her black adopted son, Ante, that arrived from the sea on a piece of wood. Written by haddal

Awesomely awesome!
10 February 2005 | by (Silver Lake, Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

If you're tired of politically correct thrillers, chick flicks and endlessly boring dramas from Hollywood, this is the movie for you! A group of mostly drunk but always entertaining people living on a fjord in Norway go through a series of events that could only happen in the imagination of a hunchbacked orphan dope fiend. I'll skip the plot outline, as it has already been done; no outline could do this film justice. Don't bother trying to predict what will happen next; the only certainty while watching this movie is that the unexpected, the bizarre, the ridiculous and the absurd will always prevail. Did I see the ending coming? No, I didn't even attempt such lofty heights of madness. I just sat back with my girlfriend, the red-haired Irish queen of late night cinema, and enjoyed it.

Don't bother picking out a favorite character among the adulterous lapplanders, the wife-killing alcoholics, the lecherous older women, the semi-retarded oafs or the sex-starved nymphettes; every single character gets their whole world turned upside down and all around, somehow seeming to enjoy the process and have a completely optimistic view of the future as their houses burn, they chop pieces off themselves with axes, and deliver babies unaided on hillsides.

If you want something different and yet enjoyable, this is it. If you want pretentious art flicks or mainstream Hollywood, go somewhere else. This movie fits in between somewhere.
