When Pedersen is called in to the principal's office early in the movie, she is reading/taking notes in a book with a barcode on the front. Barcodes were used for the first time on merchandise in 1974, and these were not widely used in Norway at the time of the movie. See more »

Big disappointment
13 March 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Norways best director (Hans Petter Moland) teams up with the beautiful and talented Ane Dahl Torp and Kristoffer Joner, one of very few believable film actors in this country. Based on the book by Dag Solstad, a genial temporary Norwegian author, "Pedersen" should be a real treat. But it isn't. The movie is so awful its hard to believe the images you see on the screen. It's like a joke, only it isn't.

In short the story follows some extraordinary horny Norwegian working-class people. Their ambition is a armed revolution against "the capitalistic pigs". They have sex and sing, sing and have sex. And neither is amusing or remotely interesting to watch. I just got embarrassed and even more so as "the movie" progressed.

Norwegian critics have given the movie rave reviews, but do not trust them. This movie is crap and it's a damn shame that we have wasted taxpayers money on this awful mess.

Don't see it - life is way too short.
