23 October 2000 | by perulvSee all my reviews

see it two times. notice how you can use as much time as possible on daily routines, find the hidden story, use your brain. This movie may seem strange to people who never have been sitting in the same room for a week, but some people actually live like this, believe it or not.

the actors are excellent, dialogue is "kjempebra"....

hard to describe, just see it, dammit!
