User Reviews

Decent film version of young adult crime fiction
30 October 2014 | by triplegrimSee all my reviews

Much has been said of the dialogue, and this films cult status. It is a 1990 film version of a 1988 book, and much of the dialogue is straight from the book. It is meant to capture the 1980s sociolects, and is comically dated today, though reasonably accurate in its depiction.

Technically the film is quite good, the city shots of Oslo, with moving camera and on location scenes are quite good. The director makes the most of her film debut, and Døden på Oslo S far exceeds its two sequels. Having 15 year olds playing 15 year olds, is an artistic choice, that gives it a genuine feel.

Decent film.
