Who cares if the world goes under if you've got more important problems
19 March 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Are we so blind to environmental problems and a planet struggling, that we really not are able to take it in? This questions is asked in this Norwegian comedy about a Norwegian couple going on a budget holiday to the Swedish coast. There they meet a Danish cancer-ridden pensioner (Ghita Nørby), maybe out on her last holiday.

The six persons, all having their own problems, like one of the couples have a mute son, or marriage problems. Important problems. Problems like getting the wrong cabin, a dry sex-life, not able to have kids, the followings of having a mute kid (no wonder, you'll see...), hairy backs, and others. So no wonder when it starts to cloud up, and the end of the world as we know it appears, just as told in the bible.

The film is character driven, have a lot of funny dialog. The audience at the cinema had lots of good laughs, especially the rather-not-so-romantic-scenes, and it's just a pity that this film didn't succeed better at the box office.

The film is wonderfully filmed with some colorful yellow and red filters, giving the film a special warmth. And warm the day is, the final day of the World, when the sun seems not to wanna go down...

There's a message in this comedy. And this stays on after watching the film. I can't tell more about this without giving spoilers, but the film is well worth a watch.

When the world goes down, we really wouldn't understand what happened. We'll simple not see it coming, though we've read this over and over. Save the planet before it's too late!
