Stavanger is no longer a small fishing town on the West Coast, priding itself on titles like "oil capital" and "culture capital." People are wealthier, the cars more expensive and the houses more luxurious. Old wooden houses are demolished to give way to large residential complexes and gigantic food festivals. French acrobats dominate cultural life and behind it all, the global financial crisis is looming. In the middle of this materialistic everyday reality is Jonny Kristiansen, an up and coming 25 year old broker. Hungry for money and success, he is pulled into an unscrupulous financial world with cigars, champagne and exclusive escort girls. Jonny takes off and aims at the top of the finance pyramid with his goal to become the best, richest and most powerful at whatever cost. Written by Anonymous

Strong dirty rotten business, but not flawless
2 November 2009 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

"Everything can be bought with money" and "Greed is no crime" stands as the main quotes of this new flick from Arild Østin Ommundsen.

Rottenetter is another film good based in the oil capital of Norway, Stavanger. This being very different from director Ommundsens great films "Mongoland" and "Monstertorsdag".

Rottenetter is immediately giving us a feel of Brett Easton Ellis and his novel "American Psycho". Sharp, crisp, cold photographing, with great angles and a artistic pace. Just great.

The main characters does a great job. All of them. These are strong performances all over. Christian Rubeck is flawless. Fine also to see well known director Hans Petter Moland in a minor role as a lawyer. (Director of "Aberdeen", "Secondløitnanten", "The beautiful country" and "Zero Kelvin".)

But Rottenetter has a main problem for me. The film needs subtitles even in Norwegian. In another language this will not be a problem, but as a Norwegian, I had problems getting hold of all the dialog in the local tongue. This reminds me of what i hoped was a long gone problem in Norwegian films; sound. The strange thing here is that the sound score is absolutely great. All other sounds than 50% of the spoken dialog. How is that possible?

The characters being far out with their problems is debatable, I guess, but the environment gives this credibility. Money talks.

But all in all I enjoyed the film, loving the package, but the film could have been so much more.
