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

Really nice movie even for non-Norwegians!!!
5 April 2005 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

I watched the film during the Istanbul Film Festival (2-17 April 2005) between two low-tempered films both from Europe, and Uno just suited very well between those two slow ones. The first thing about "Uno" is its tempo. It starts in a smooth mode and goes on like this through the whole film. Even in the beginning, when the main characters were introduced, the movie starts to "move". Both the visual technique Hennie used and the elements of the story serve the the tempo of the film very well. The movie has waves in itself but it never breaks at any point. The second important thing i guess is the atmosphere of the movie. Every place in the movie was well-chosen and well-prepared. The houses, the room of David, the gym... The atmosphere created by Hennie was dark but hopeful. And i liked it. And Tom Mcrae's songs adds a lot to the movie. After all, nice movie even for non-Norwegians!! 8/10.
