Hmm I see that this film has been enjoyed all over the world, and I must say I'm a little surprised.. I am a Norweigian and I have seen it a couple of times when it has gone on the TV for some years ago, but I never thought it would reach out to so many people... The funny thing is.... I'm in it. Now a 27 year old man going on 28, its strange seeing that even now, almost eleven years after, it still touches people. My part wasn't big, though I had a few lines, but it is such a strange feeling to have been part of something that still is held so close to the heart that some of the "fans" of the film keep it. I remember being a little embarrassed the first time I saw it on the premiere in Oslo, cause I guess i was hoping for something more exciting. You must remember I was only 16. But now I see it in a different way. I hope you all still will enjoy the film as I enjoyed being part of it..
