Catch up with the villagers up north
1 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

It is about the mentality of the people up north. They sure put a smile on our faces. Thick headed villagers, as they are, each of them filled with rather flaws than attributes. A group of champions of understatements and the movie is celebrating this rather unromantic shortcoming with a pulled back and understating tone. A true understatement fest, in other words.

The movie opens with a creative visual language that is just awesome. However, after a few minutes in we abandon that and what catches my attention the most from now on is the hard weather conditions-thorn-real-outdoor locations. Until the final act again surprises with the kind of magic you pay money to see. I think the movie makers want to give us the opportunity to get to know people from this part of the world and hang out with them. That won't hurt anyone. You always learn something new.
