After "Budbringeren" (1997), the expectations have been really high for
Norwegian director Pål Sletaune's next movie, "Amatørene". When he last
refused to direct the fantastic "American Beauty" because "the screenplay
wasn't good enough...", one could start to wonder what the heck was going
on. But even though "Amatørene" isn't nearly as good as the American Oscar
winner, it's really a good movie, with entertainment value high above an
average Hollywood comedy. I'm one of few Norwegian filmfreaks who haven't
seen "Budbringeren" yet (I was going to, but then my VHS tape got stuck in
the player, so too bad...), so my expectations were on a comfortable low
level. There were no way I could possibly be disappointed, and I wasn't.
the other side, I was very positively surprised. But in fact, the only
reason I saw the movie, was because a friend asked me. Without him, I
I would just have let it passed, so I'm glad he asked, 'cause that would
have been a shame. No I just have to wait until "Budbringeren" is shown
again on TV.
**** out of ***** from me.
