It's November 1989, and the Berlin Wall is falling. In Stavanger, Norway, teenage boy Jarle has a great new girlfriend and is starting a rock band with his buddies. But when a new boy, the synth pop-listening Yngve, joins his class, Jarle is more fascinated than he wants to be, and the world as he knows it starts to crumble. Written by
Peter Brandt Nielsen
It is wonderful to know that even in far away rural Norway exciting and moving love stories can find their way to the big screen. This feature is nothing short then a blessing.
Firstly, it describes a time not-so-long ago without internet, mobile phones and ipods. The year is 1989 - a time when people actually had to communicate verbally and face to face for luck of other means. The human touch in the film is very much pronounced. Everything has a slower pace then what we are used to nowadays, and it's wonderful.
The love triangle is very compelling and convincing. Young boy meets the most beautiful other young boy and falls in love without even understanding why or how it will effect his life. In a time and place that being gay is not very well accepted, the story makes a very honest and truthful statement.
The acting of all the cast is very good. Yes, there is talent in Norway! We need more of this please..
A must see for all, highly recommended!
