"Uro" doesn't impress...
29 August 2006 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

All though this story is interesting in itself, the underlying emotional aspect is not given enough weight. Unfortunately the script is not good enough to make us understand, or at least care, about HP's bad and confusing choices during this 104 minutes. He makes weird and stupid decisions over and over again and it is just irritating...! The inter-human relations in this story are in addition badly reproduced. HP and Makker, HP and Mette, HP and Marco, HP and his dead father... We don't get the feeling that he is close to any of them, and yet their relation is supposed to mean more than what the film is able to express. Another thing that is weird, are scenes where people start shouting to each other without any obvious reason... People can get "caught in the moment" and engaged in a discussion of course, but two men yelling at each other in a block-apartment still seems weird when you see it on-screen. Difficult to explain, it just seemed a bit... "off". The action scenes is not at all bad. Norwegian film is definitely improving on this aspect. Nicolai Cleve Broch is a great actor, and he is convincing in his role as HP, but his character is not nuanced enough. I blame the script, cause he has already proved that he can manage this ambivalence in "Uno". Ane Dahl Torp is okay as Mette, but doesn't give much extra to the film. Ahmed Zeyan as Marco is also okay, but none of them "blows me away". Ingar Helge Gimle as "Makker" is all wrong!
