Storyline

1979 is ending, the 80s are approaching rapidly. Carl and Robert, two slacker best friends who smoke hashish as a way of cheerful living - have been peddling hashish for a decade, hitting an all time high with this last batch: 45 Kilos of pure, high grade Nepalese Hashish destined for the draught-dry Oslo streets. In their own eyes they are not criminals they simply provide the life-essential drug to a suffering population. But then Glenn comes along, their friend and ambitious financial-backer-destined-to-be-a-yuppie. He has plans to make this deal even bigger than they have been led to believe. Following the delivery of the hashish, the police are on their tail for heroin-smuggling a fact they cannot explain as they both hate heroin and would never touch the drug. Finally they both awake from their self-induced haze, and fight back in a hilarious, suspenseful and dramatic ending. Written by Mondo

70's stoners in Oslo try to hit just one more deal
31 January 2011 | by (Tellus) – See all my reviews

This is at the end of the 70's, the dreams of the hippies are to some degree still alive, but shadows of the cold and greedy 80's throw it's long shadows into some "idealistic" drug traders.

The movie is an ode to that culture and how it destroyed itself. It is much fun and has funny episodes and characters aplenty.

Joner is great as always, he is one of the most versatile actors in Norwegian cinema. The ever-present Bjørn Sundquist makes a good Stalin-Knudsen, the chief of the drug-police who is omnipresent at the wrong times. Robert Skjærstad from "Junk Mail" makes a good role also as the shady dealer Svarten.

Will these children of the revolution get out of it alive?
