In (at least) two scenes Pedersen is walking up a steep hill in Larvik. In the harbor behind him you clearly see a funnel marked with the Colorline Logo. This company was established 20 years after the movie took place. See more »

OK, but misses a few marks
21 May 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This movie is quite good, but not quite as good as it could and should have been. The main problem is that AKP-ML only looks like some small comical sect with less than a dozen members. From what I've heard from people that lived in this period, they were actually quite big and made a huge impact on several parts of society, especially for students. I wish this could have been better shown in the movie.

Other than that, there's a lot of good stuff here. While some things are a bit over the top, the story is actually pretty good and the acting is good as well, although seeing Joner in about every Norwegian movie is starting to feel a bit strange. But being the best actor of them all, I guess you can live with that.
