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
Svidd Neger aka Burned Negro is one flick I was pretty amped to check out.
When someone refers to it as somewhat like Pink Flamingos, and then mixed with that pretty damn un-pc title, it's almost must-see viewing. Well, I watched it, and I'm not sure how Pink Flamingo-y it is, but damn, this was a really good flick.
Story revolves around a drunk as hell, apparition seeing Dad and his daughter living alone in the north regions of Norway. Not far away and unbeknownst to the Dad and Daughter, there is another family with a mother, horny and fat son (who looks just like Francis in Pee Wee's Big Adventure), and adopted black son who all seem to live together in a not-so peaceful type way. Throw in a young man who's trying to escape his Saami ways, and you have a mish mash of personalities that result in all types of drama and humor.
This is a very, very good black comedy. It's been probably since Taxidermia that I've watched such black comedy in a flick.
The drunk Dad is a stand-out when he's seeing the ghosts. Usually a person would be terrified of a ghost, but not this guy. He gets angry, and it's really funny stuff. Throw in very good acting from all the actors, very silly moments, and some nudity and you've already got the ingredients for a very entertaining flick.
Svidd Neger, is a flick for definitely fans of foreign flicks like Taxidermia. And if you're a fan of black comedy mixed with bizarre silly humor, then you should be pleased as well.
I didn't know Norway had this type of cinema in them, but I'm very pleased to have found out. I knew about The Dudesons, but they may be Finnish....nevertheless our brothers to the way North have got some serious talent.
