Hilarious crazy comedy with great performances
28 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

In this classic Norwegian comedy, which arguably is the best ever, we meet almost every Norwegian comedian in often more than one role, where Rolf Wesenlund really steals the movie with his arrogant roles.

The married small children's couple Ingrud and Olav Femte is building a house in the rural country. Ingrid is pregnant with another, and Olav as to deal with a hopeless entrepreneur, builders and Notwegian bureaucracy.

It's a crazy comedy, but still it gives both a rare glimpse on how it was to establish a new home in the seventies, as well as how the bureaucracy was back then. Of course, Femte meets all possible problems, and hen a few more impossible to foresee, but still this film is a laugh out loud comedy, which in the end makes you feel really sorry for the young family.

Absolutely everyone does their job well. A great comedy which was a great national success in 1972, and which has been a yearly holiday TV classic ever since.
