Storyline

The whole plot in this crazy comedy movie is a story about a geeky and nerdy guy called Polle, who lives in a little village named Snave, which is far out in the Danish countryside. Even though he has turned 30, he's is still living with his parents, and he's kind of an outsider in the little town. The only sort of "friends" he actually has, are three totally much more insane yokels named Heino, Jøgge and Knasti, who are always spending their time, doing live tough for poor Polle. Besides is the heavy and crazy Heino, Polles master in the local roto-rooter. Polles is his student and one day he's about to clean the sewers real for the very first time. But unfortunately, Polle can't control the roto-rooter and is badly damaged and hurt. He ends up at the hospital with a deformed overhead, but is promised a huge compensation by Heino, who actually doesn't know anything about that subject. Lillian, a blond and kind of attractive single mum with two young kids at her feet, suddenly eyes a ... Written by Philip S. Christensen

Goofs

Before Polle is being sucked by the sludge sucker machine the hose is barely long enough to reach the sewer. When he's getting sucked, and thus flying around out of control, the hose seems much longer (and a lot stiffer for that matter). See more »

Best Danish movie ever !
19 July 2002 | by melsenSee all my reviews

"Money, power, lust - and mud !", such reads the tagline of "Polle Fiction". Don't believe a word when people tell you this movie is bad - it's great !. Forget all those awful looking unbearable Danish films of late in the so-called Dogme style, "Polle Fiction" is quite simply the greatest comedy to ever come out of Denmark. It may be based on a series of Danish TV commercials (the movie is kept in the same style), but you forget this as you watch it. The filmmakers have succeeded in giving it the feel of a real movie. Yes, it's sleazy slapstick of the ultra offensive kind and the story is paper-thin, but so were many movies years ago and people still flocked to see them. If you're one of those who believe yourself to be a serious film fan and this silly stuff is below you, and that movies in general have changed for the better and so forth, ie. all movies today need be "intelligent" for you to (think you) enjoy them, then you really have a problem with not only humour but movies in general. "Polle Fiction" (the title is a playoff on "Pulp Fiction", obviously) is somewhat related in spirit to over-the-top type crazy and violent British TV sit-coms like "Bottom" and "The Young Ones", admittedly nowhere near as brilliantly written as those TV shows, but undoubtedly inspired by the mad antics of Rik Mayall & Co. The story is simple: the one good guy in the movie (in the whole town really), Polle, is constantly bullied by his "friends" at work, Heino and Jøgge, and one day he has a gruesome accident resulting in him being scalped by the giant tube they use to suck up muddy waste - that's their job, you see. It's also a love story, believe it or not. The acting, by mostly unknowns, is superb and there's a rich gallery of goofy characters; the beer drinking insane Heavy Metal and '80s German pop music crowd the ever-taunted Polle hangs out with, a vile sexist/racist/rapist driving-instructor (!), the Turkish immigrant pizza owner, a single mother (who's a stripper) with her two incredibly annoying kids, and the nutty local DJ who plays all that terrible music. Apparently the story takes place in the '80s but it might as well be today. The action is based solely in the tiny village of Snave in Denmark, and the humour is very "local" as are (obviously) the dialects. If this movie ever gets a foreign release (I've heard rumours it may) many of the funny bits will be lost in the translations, but it'll still be hilarious. "Polle Fiction" is a nice surprise, and a cool breeze in the overrated Danish movie landscape which has grown accustomed to awards and unworthy praise lately, alas, thinking too highly of itself. Let's hope there will be many sequels !.
