Clever plot
6 August 2003 | by romeo cliveSee all my reviews

As opposed to many other Norwegian comedies of this era, this one actually has quite a clever plot - as the result of several misunderstandings, a millionaire that for some reason is pretending to be a journalist ends up playing the role as himself, the millionaire, for an evening. Unni Bernhoft, best known for her part in the classic "Fjols til fjells" by Edith Carlmar, gives one of her better performances, and Henki Kolstad is in good form as the millionaire. Several funny moments, but the would-be slapstick pool sequence is quite hopeless. Watch out for Willie Hoel's uncannily graceful ballet steps.
