Heartfelt and Well Done!
11 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jernanger tells the story of cantankerous old sailor and the young man he befriends. Taking place almost exclusively on a rickety old boat in a Norwegian town, the film is simple, beautifully shot, wonderfully acted, and moving.

The movie flirts with cheesiness, the angry old man develops a fatal disease where his heart grows ... and then he learns how to love again! Get it?!?! But the stark northern European minimalism, dreary mood, and great script cancels out the risks of too much sentimentalism. Also, there are a couple of moments when action is inserted into the film in an unnecessary, Hollywoodesque fashion, but even so, these characters are well-developed and authentic.

Essentially, it's a classic tale told beautifully, and its worth your time and money.
