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

Sickest movie out of Norway yet?
16 October 2004 | by (Tromso, Norway) – See all my reviews

Svidd Neger which means "Burnt Negro" caused a lot of controversy even before it was even seen, because of the name,

and was accused to racist. The finished product had no sign of racism in it though, but it

would upset people never the less. Or maybe not.. whatever is

going on in this movie is too bloody weird to get provoked by.

Or maybe it is. People react differently to things don't they?

Beautiful thing that.

One thing that is sure about the norwegian movie business is that

its probably going the right way, when crazy stuff like this gets

financed. This is no average norwegian movie at all. Still its

probably one of the best movies from Norway I've seen..

I know a lot of movies called "sick", but few movies that deserves it

as much as Svidd Neger. Its not a movie to view with your parents

probably, that for sure. It has a lot of really sick humor.

The story is set on a farm, and another farm.. and no person in this

movie is sane. Except for the girl to some extent.

I see a lot of people is comparing this to stuff David Lynch has

directed. Mmm. Not quite. Its much more silly and crazy.. and its

not an art-movie either. Its better to compare it to Lars Von Trier's

"The Idiots". Much better. Its a good picture though, and even if a more crazy ending would

have suited it its a brilliant movie! I gave it an 8/10 myself.
