The scene changes and we see Trond(Øystein Offer-Olsen) and Oystein(Hans Jacob Melbye) running down a hillside and through the woods to a small lake.

As one of the boys is preparing to take off his bottoms, he is startled by a cow and pulls them back up. The other boy attempts to cover his genitalia with his hands.

As they are sitting on ...

The joys of childhood
15 June 2005 | by screenwriter_rickSee all my reviews

If you are looking for a film that takes you to a time of sheer innocence, then this is it.

"Sommerjubel" is simply as the film states: Joy of Summer.

Two boys, age ten, spend their summer in idyllic rural surroundings. They play in the fields, they swim au natural, and more often than not - - - they find themselves in the company of those very beings that a ten-year-old boy pretends to hate..... girls! Although simplistic in nature, I found myself enjoying this film that takes me back to the rural upbringing of my own youth. Rarely does a film capture the pure innocence of childhood, as "Sommerjubel".
