When building their new home, married couple Ingrid and Olav Femte meet unforeseen trouble and bureaucracy. For starters, the couple has trouble with con man/entrepreneur Kleppe and with all the terrible workers on the site. They soon also find themselves in trouble with the police, the neighbors and all kinds of authorities. Eventually, the house does get built, but is the couple safe now?Written by
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.
