In Sid Wisløff's flashback, where he "solves" his first case, turning in his father for moon-shining, Sid is caught drinking the last Coca Cola in the house. The bottle in the film is shown with a paper label. In the 70's, the time of the flashback, Norwegian Coke bottles had the logo painted on the bottles. They did not have paper labels. See more »
This is a must see! A group of friends from a small town i northern Norway has made a low budget spoof movie loosely based on Tarantino's Kill Bill - and it's funny as heck! For movie aficionados it contains references to a fjord-load of classics, from Star Wars to Deliverance, in addition to the obvious likeness to the two Kill Bills. Splatter, cheesy one-liners and arctic ass-kicking all rolled into one big snowball of lowbrow laughs. Oh, and plenty of ham acting intermixed with some quite talented amateurs. The snowmobile chase scene alone is worth the price of admission! It is quite interesting that this movie has been made with almost no support from the Norwegian film establishment, and yet it's a bigger hit with young audiences than most productions that costs ten or twenty times more to make. Just goes to show that an original idea and a love of movie-making wins over money and prestige every time.
