You think my penis is repulsive
16 June 2005 | by john-beyondSee all my reviews

Masterfully awful and bad love story by Norway's baddest filmmakers ever. A seventies couple argue incessantly over the banal and the trivial for 90 minutes. They fight at the bus stop, they fight in restaurants, man oh man, they fight just about everywhere! He is a garbage man and she works at a kiosk. How thoroughly involving. This is social realism at its very worst, and it's an insult to other actors to call what the two leads do in this film "acting" Only worth watching for the ending in which the husband thankfully strangles the wife while screaming : (in Norwegian of course, but now translated for your viewing pleasure)

"You think my penis is repulsive! You think my penis is repulsive!" All together now:
