Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg:
[Speaking at a televised press conference]
Few people find power grids attractive. I certainly don't. Norwegians are pro-electricity, but against power lines. That won't work in the long run. Norway has trolls, so more power lines are needed. That's just the way it is.

I saw this at Sundance last Friday and have to say it is the most fun I have had at the movies in a long while. The story is filmed in "mockumentary" style a la Cloverfield and has a healthy dose of dry Scandanavian humor to accent the dramatic and action sequences. While the story is relatively tight, it does not have the pretense as Sundance entries often do, as it never takes itself too seriously. We ran into a couple of the film's producers the next day in Park City and found them to be as grounded as the film they were behind.
I highly recommend this film and seriously hope it sees the light of day in the U.S.
