Goofs

When the family is up under Mount Gausta, tenting, the mountain is clouded down, but during the conversation and different camera-angles, the mountain is clear, as can be when the next frame shows the majestic mountain behind them. The clouds and fog couldn't disappear like that in 5 seconds. See more »

"Genuinly moving drama..."
2 March 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Norwegian director Arild Andresen's second feature film which he co-wrote with Norwegian screenwriter Lars Gudmestad, is an adaptation of a novel from 2005 by Norwegian author Tore Renberg, so far the third adaptation of his books about Jarle Klepp, and was shot in Skinnarbu, Arendal and Stavanger in Norway. It tells the story about teenager Jarle Orheim who lives with his father Terje and his mother Sara in Stavanger during the mid-1980s. Jarle's father talks a lot about World War II and Company Linge who he admires and has a dream which he describes as Company Orheim. He also tries to establish a close relationship with Jarle, but his drinking and abusive behaviour has Jarle distancing himself from his family. At middle school Jarle finds a friend in Helge Ombo, an outspoken communist, and even though things are not easy at home Jarle joins his friend's party and begins to focus on politics and girls.

This acute and affective portrayal of a young man who while in search of his own identity strives to make his conflicted father understand the consequences of his actions and prevent his family from falling apart, is a nicely directed and photographed coming-of-age tale with fine naturalistic milieu depictions and witty dialog, which draws an insightful study of character and examines themes such as identity, family relations and reconciliation. The great score by Norwegian composer Aslak Hartberg increases the retrospective atmosphere in this charming, humorous and character-driven Norwegian production which is reinforced by the involving and remarkable acting performances by Kristoffer Joner, Cecilie Mosli and Vebjørn Enger in his debut feature film role. A compassionate and genuinely moving drama which gained the Dragon Award for Best Nordic Film at the 35th Gøteborg International Film Festival in 2012.
