Storyline

Uno is a story from inner-city Oslo about David, a twentyfive-year-old with few prospects for the future. His days are spent hanging around with petty criminals at an inner-city gym. Still, it's better than home: His father is terminally ill, his brother is mentally handicapped, and he's unable to connect with his mother.But then, as his father is on his deathbed, the gym is raided by the police. David chooses to betray his friends in the hope of reaching his father for a last farewell. But it's too late. With his father dead and his mother grief-stricken, he's also forced to take responsibility for his brother on top of fighting off his former underworld friends. The crisis makes David realize what's truly important in his life: his family. He starts assuming responsibility for both his past and his future. By losing everything, David is given a chance to start over from scratch and rebuild his life. Written by Anonymous

In the scene when David is sitting on the bed after they wrap the dead dog in plastic, his hands are half-covered in blood and his white shirt is perfectly clean. After switching back and forth between David and Morten, his hands are now fully covered in blood, in addition to his shirt being stained on the elbows, even though he has just been sitting on the bed.

What it means to be alone in a cold cold world........UNO
23 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know where to start. This film is excellent on many levels. All of the characters are believable and the storyline is quite realistic. The acting is superb. The soundtrack is great. The camera work is excellent. The movie is packed with RAW emotion.

David represents anyone who is alone in this world, or at least feels alone. His life was in a rut. His father is dying, his mom is having a nervous breakdown, and his brother has down syndrome. Aside from that he has no real friends he can depend on. David is really alone mentally and physically. Even though the film is very downbeat and sad, I feel that the ending shows how a real man must face the world. We must face it by ourselves.

I truly enjoyed the film and I think anyone with an open mind will enjoy this emotional piece of art.
