Storyline

Kristoffer is a billboard hanger, 24 years old and carefree. When his girlfriend Elisabeth dumps him for the boss of her trend bureau, his life falls into pieces. He feels like a loser. By coincidence some of Kristoffer's video diaries end up with the producer of the popular talk show "Karsten Tonight" in TV2. A few weeks later Kristoffer's life has become TV entertainment. People love the sequences from his commune at Tøyen: Kristoffer's half-twisted view of his surroundings, his crazy best friend Geir, not to mention the weird web designer Stig Inge, who hasn't set foot outside the Tøyen shopping center for two years. Kristoffer's future again looks bright, everyone likes him, but revealing your life on national television comes with a price tag. As Kristoffer's future in the TV business looks brighter and brighter, his friends start suffering. Geir's big secret is revealed, and Stig Inge's personal problems are much more serious than Kristoffer first thought. It will cost him a ... Written by Anonymous

Quite close to teenagers preferences
8 May 2005 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I'm really happy that i saw such a well-done movie not only because of the characters but also because of the soundtracks which fit perfectly with the main idea.I liked very much Stig Inge but of course Henriette and Kristoffer,they played with professionalism and had no hesitance in what concerns their roles.I'd say that European people can do great movies and it's not necessary for the American to come on with their ideas.When i first saw the movie i was amazed by how the actors did their "job",how they acted actually.It's not so easy to play roles like they did.They were chosen for this movie as well to send us a message,and only by their gesture you can easily say that young people live their lives intensely and without the fear of something happening.The message that i received was absolutely strong.Teenagers and those living their lives with their friends far from their parents should explore everything ,should live their every feeling and shouldn't care about people who just try to keep them away.There can be many other messages but maybe i have to watch for the 4th time the movie for a better understanding.Anyway it's worth to give 10!
