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

Goofs

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.

Oslo underworld
11 April 2005 | by (Tellus) – See all my reviews

This about gang criminality, loyalty to the gang and cowardliness was a very pleasant surprise. I find it to be a realistic picture of how these things operate with well developed characters, good script, realistic atmosphere with sometimes a very strong feeling of anxiety and the actors are all fit their role very good including the mother of David and Kjetil who I find very understanding of the situation and a strong mother. Best is Bjørn Floberg as Jarle though. He is quite scary actually.

Aksel Hennie put a lot of work into the script and you can tell. It moves very quickly with no dead points. The relations are thought out. Camera-work is good too, Oslo center-east is put forth as it feels, but not too easily is transmitted through pictures. Recommended together with 'Hawaii, Oslo' in which Hennie plays a similar role in the neighbourhood of this movie and 'Schpaaa' also about Oslo underworld and its affiliation with youths. Both are by Erik Poppe. Not meant to take away the spotlight from 'Uno' though.
