The Lack Of Talent Among Norwegian Movie Makers...
28 April 2009 | by (Oslo) – See all my reviews

Words can't describe how terrible this movie is. Everything about "Min misunnelige frisør" is terrible. The dialogues, the characters, the acting, the locations, the music, and not to mention the story itself. It's a mystery to me how anyone actually came up with the idea of making this movie in the first place. Yes, I know it's an adaptation of Lars Saabye Christensen short story, but why make a movie out of that story? There's nothing really interesting about it at all. Nothing. Much of Christensen's success as an author lies in his choice of words and his writing style; something that can't be transferred into a movie. And the director of "Min misunnelige frisør" has obviously failed when it came to replacing Christensen's words with artistic effects.

The movie follows a boring middle aged man and his relationship to his even more boring hairdresser. In addition, there's a love story on top of it all, which is nothing but ridiculous and definitely not believable. I guess the message of this movie is something like "we should not be so afraid of changes in our lives", but it would have been much easier to just write it on a piece of paper. And much more effectual.

My general impression of the movie is that it's a failed attempt to be one of these "absurd" and charming movies. It's simply painful to watch. Truly embarrassing. If you actually enjoy Norwegian movies, which I doubt that many people do, "Min misunnelige frisør" is probably perfect for you. To the rest of you: the only positive thing I can say about this movie, is that it only lasts for about 70 minutes. Maybe the producers realized people wouldn't stand the boredom any longer..?
