Looks crappy, but proves to be different..
1 June 2007 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This movie is about forbidden love between a Norwegian white boy and a Pakistani girl. The girl had to break up, since she was going to a forced-marriage with another Pakistani. The girl have given up, while Jan, the Norwegian guy, keep on fighting. He is prepared to do everything to convince the girl's father...

The movie sounds very cheesy, I know. I must admit that I was in doubt, when I was going to see this movie. I thought: let's check the IMDb-rating first! Well, luckily I did not. Norwegian movies tends to be very crappy, but in fact, this movie turned out to be quite enjoyable. The movie was quite clever in keeping my interest by serving a lot of warm-hearted humor. This is a feel-good film, and if you're in doubt: I am actually a male! Give it a chance, you won't regret.
