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

Strange... but kinda funny!
29 May 2004 | by (Freising, Germany) – See all my reviews

I learned about this movie when checking the new releases of my favorite band, ULVER, who did the great score to this movie. When I learned, what "Svidd Neger" really means and that the movie was reported to the European Court of Human Rights in Hague, I imagined it would be some sort of shocking drama.

Nah...it's a comedy, or at least sort of!

It's hard to describe, what the movie is about at all, but a main topic are racial conflicts in Norway. The Characters are fairly strange, we have Karl, who is the king of his 10 acre fjord property and always dreams about his murdered wife. Anna, Karls daughter, who should have been a boy instead, likes to sing real tearjerker songs and is about to marry the next "prince" that drops in. On the other side of the fjord live Ante, a black who believes he's a mysterious "Sea Saami", his stepbrother Peder, who wanks till ...(you'll see), and their mother Ellen. In addition a Saami by the name of "Normann Hætta Bongo Utsi Saus" strikes a camp nearby. He's a real Peeping Tom and constantly gets calls from his mom. In the end, there's the black commander of some American Nato troops, who is desperately in need of a son.

So 1 1/2 hours full of promiscuity, gore and explosions unfold(actually the explosions are the highlights of this movie, always interesting to see, WHAT things are able to explode :) ).

The movie scores with both great soundtrack and the beautiful Norwegian landscapes. Yet the cut was done very roughly and the transitions between the scenes are lacking or poorly.

If you like mind-twisting avant-garde trash, you shouldn't miss this movie!
