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

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.

A memorable film, mostly because of the grim reality-feel in the movie. You can tell that some of the story is bigraphical from the director.
Situated in Oslo, it does a good job portraing the city. Most of it's outdoor scenes are filmed in a green-greyish color, which resembles the harsh nature of the aspahlt-story.
Also a very good contributor to the good grades is the music; Tom Mcrae's work is amazingly perfect to the film and a crucial part of making this movie memorable, and thus; a film worth owning.
The director (who is the guy who plays the main character), started writing on the script in 1996, but it didn't surface as a movie almost ten years later. It has been worth the wait, and a promising start for a young director; please make more films, Axel Henie.
