A heartfelt story of life's relationships
10 March 2009 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Jernanger is the much awaited Pål Jackman movie after the funny, engaging and beloved "Detektor" from 2000.

We meet a hateful and disillusioned owner of a small island ferry now being used as a bar along a Stavanger peer. He hates daylight so much that he, more or less drunk, every morning fires at least one shot at the sun. One morning he wakes up a young man sleeping over after having a row with his pregnant girlfriend about having the kid or not. From there we learn to see the the similarities of the two stories, telling about mens trouble with commitment to true love.

The film is about friendship, love and some of the most important decisions in life, and the film succeeds quite well in this. There's not far from despair to belief, even on the lost opportunities in life. But you got to grab it when it comes your way.

Good acting throughout assures us believing in persons and the story. Bjørn Sundquist is great, as always, playing the main character, and newcomer and Pål Sverre Valheim Hagen is brilliant in his second feature film. The trailer of this movie is not telling much about the film, and is actually quite boring and misleading. The film will not get more viewers out of the trailer. Pål Jackman know how to tell a story, so let's hope it won't be eight years to the new celluloid we get from his direction.
