Trouble starts when Lars, a 25-year-old with few prospects for the future, discovers that an older man is fooling around with the teenage boys in his suburb. A terrible rage is triggered in Lars, and he embarks on a crusade to stop the abuser. But it soon spins out of control, and Lars' actions end up endangering those he set out to protect. Written by
Sønner is another proof that the Norwegian film industry is growing to a respectable level. In Sønner we get to know Lars and his discovery of a older man's abuse of young boys. His reaction and how he confronts the issue evolves to be a brutal conflict, seen as assaulter by the police, and as heroes by the public.
The movie is at some level disgusting, but a realistic portray of a 25 year old man's revenge and hostility against pedophiles. Excellent acting by somewhat unknown actors, and commitment by difficult roles as a pedophile, and the abused. The script is beautifully written as we begin to sympathize for all parts.
An impressing contribution to the Norwegian filmography.
