Heftig og Begeistret
1 January 2007 | by MSee all my reviews

"Why was the movie made?" - Well it all started with Knut Erik Jensen listening to them in church then making the movie.

For me the movie was real. People who say is fake is wrong. Under the filming they cried, laughed and had discussion. The movie made Berlevåg visible on the map, and people still comes to Berlevåg to see the place and the movie.

To me it was fun seeing the other side of the people then just the singing.

"Have the ever performed outside?" - Yes they have, before the movie and after the movie. And during one of those out sides people got sick, but no one complained and everyone was just happy about the movie..

Knut Erik Jensen is a great man and he made a fantastic movie, maybe he should have showed us other sides of the movie, but then again, maybe he did?
