A true image of Norwegian football-fans, 28 July 2006
Author: Stian Andreassen from Norway

Norwegian movies have never been something outstanding. Our Swedish and Danish neighbours have always been way ahead of us. We only have a handful of good actors and actresses, and they have been way overused. That's why it is such a delight to see some new faces in a Norwegian film, even though it is about football/soccer (which I hate), and the guys are middle-aged overweight grey-haired men with one of the weirdest accents in the whole damn country. The movie doesn't break any boundaries. Hell, it doesn't even reach for the boundaries. The actors aren't good actors, they are actually regular football fans just the way they appear in the movie. But, I must say, this movie was very enjoyable - I laughed through most of the movie, and the end made me feel patriotic even though I hate football/soccer and don't even celebrate on May 17th, our constitution day. On scale from 1 to 10 for Norwegian films; I'd give it a 8.5. Internationally: Sorry, but I can't give it more than a 5. Watch the movie. Enjoy it! :)
