Best norwegian film I have seen!
1 December 2009 | by tsunamipapSee all my reviews

I've been checking out Scandinavian films, because I'm from scandinavia and therefore it seems natural and easy to relate to the films that are from this area of the world. And I've seen a lot of excellent danish movies and also really good Swedish movies, but this is the first really good norwegian movie I have seen:-). Kristoffer Joner is a fantastic actor and I will be looking out for him, he has done a good job in the movies I have seen, and this movie is no exception. The movie itself is captivating and funny at the same time. The main theme is love and the relationship between male and female, and it's played out really well. Both of the main characters play excellent and you believe their story and the side characters are maybe a bit exaggerated but that is what is funny in a movie and it works. Actually maybe they are not so exaggerated, because people who are really their own do exist:-)
