Solid!
19 January 2009 | by (Trondheim, Norway) – See all my reviews

This is a stylistically impressive film, with a rather simple plot, allowing the characters to shine through. And it is the characters in this film that makes it such an enjoyable one. The dialog seems natural, for once, as Norwegian acting have a history of being overly dramatic and static. Especially Bjørn Sundquist does a brilliant job of portraying an ice-cold, bitter man. The character could easily have been drawn over the top, but Sundquist is remarkably believable in this role. The cinematography and mise-en-scene provide a beautiful, yet colorless platform for this person's life. A complaint could be that the symbolism in the film is somewhat obvious at times, but with such a strong sense of style and portrayal of believable, yet strange people, this is easily forgiven. I'm giving it a plus for good use of music as well! All in all it's easily the best Norwegian film since O'Horten, in my opinion (a film which it also shares several similarities with).
