Norwegian wood....
31 August 2004 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

God, this really was as terrible as it could get. Unimaginative is just the beginning. They use every possible cliché in this movie. Lots of well known norwegians here and that's probably the only positive thing about this movie. Cause this is what happens when Hollywood movies become accepted in Norway. The old norwegian "intellectual"/"artsy" movie times are dead...for the moment being. I was actually happy when this happened, cause we where all really beyond sick of that kind of film. But instead of trying to make something fairly original me and my two friends who had to sit through this 4 weddings and a funeral monster cliché ripper of a film. Really, I want norwegian film to be good. This film did get fairly good reviews in the media over here, how that happened is a mystery. I guess it must be because we are so happy to see that we CAN make Hollywood movies too. (?) Anyways..there are good norwegian Hollywood flicks around these days, this one is NOT one of them. But if you have never seen a movie before, then it might worth it.
