Movie with a funny long man
28 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

I do to some extent enjoy the Norwegian humour of the 1950ies and 1960ies, though I am absolutely not sure if I really understand it. Lead actor Leif Juster is one of the most famous actors from the black and white-era in Norway, and his perhaps most famous movie, was the farce "fjolls til fjells" (fools in the mountain?).

Leif Juster usually portrayed a disorganized but kind and well meaning man who got himself in to a lot of trouble for being so disorganized but well meaning, and frequently, also for being tall, skinny and funny looking. In this movie he strays from his usual character by being very well organized, in fact he organizes everything, but he does it in such a tall, skinny, funny, kind and well meaning fashion that is gets him into trouble.

They say that in the 60ies people broke into laughter by the mere mention of Mr. Juster. I don't really understand it. But it is a heartwarming thought.
