A modern take of the classic Norwegian movie where our main characters meet unforeseen troubles and bureaucracy when they refurbish an inherited house, to get away from a mad mother. A hopeless and hilarious meet with the system.

Superb performances from Wesenlund and Sand in one of the best Norwegian comedies ever.
Most people in Norway will agree that Rolv Wesenlund is one of the country's best comedians of all time. The TV-series "Fleksnes" made him a star not only in Norway, but also in Sweden. In my opinion it's therefore a great shame that so many of his fans totally ignored "Norske byggeklosser". Even though the film is a bit stupid at times, the best scenes in the movie really make up for this. Wesenlund is stunning in a number of different roles (a carpenter, an electrician, an annoying neighbour and so on) and together with Bjorn Sand (as the poor guy building a new house for his family) he makes some of the scenes hilarious.
