First really great Norwegian film produced since the seventies...
This is the first time since "Flåklypa Grand Prix," that I reckon a Norwegian film worthy a 10. Being a Norwegian this film is kind of a relive, because it finally shows that we are able to produce a film that has got good actors with believable lines. It's also a piece that is filmed well, and based upon a script that young and ambitious Norwegians can relate to. All that said, I'm not sure that foreigners would interpret this the same way as Norwegians do. It might be that one of the reasons that this film has got many fans in Norway is that we can relate to the things that happens: The type of friendship between the main characters, Oslo, the "never grow up" life that an affluent society have brought us to, etcetera. Still, if someone would like to know more about being young in a country that is far from the centre of attention, but were things are possible due to an excess of resources, this is the film. The film has got typical Norwegian humour (which I actually reckon at a really high level in general), it's documenting the interrelations between the characters in a great manner, and the music is also used very well. The soundtrack for this movie is worth checking out.
