Too stupid
13 June 2008 | by jelepjokkSee all my reviews

I'm a Rolf Wesenlund fan, and I love "Fleksnes". But this film is just too annoying. The stupidity reach it's climax when Femte is stopped by the police that showing a sign with the speed limit 10 km/h. I see that Bang Hansen is trying to make a funny silence-movie scene, but it's just does'nt fit in. It's maybe the humor they had in Norway in the early 70's, but the story is so unbelievable thin. The only thing that save this movie from a complete catastrophe is some of the Wesenlund figures, specially the one laughing all the time. Maybe this is more fit for a younger crowd. Think I like Pål Bang Hansen better as a filmcritic than a director.
