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 »

Snave: nil
3 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is based on a character created for a series of TV commercials, an enthusiastic hillbilly named Polle from a boondocks village named Snave. In the commercials, Polle would at first use a telephone with a really long extension cord before discovering the services of Danish mobile communications provider Sonofor. The message was that "our mobile phones are so simple that every yokel can use them".

The movie creates a fascinating, colourful and utterly inane cosmos around Polle, a world dipped in neon colours, decked out with kitsch and firmly stuck in the Eighties. Beware, there be Cabbage Patch Kids be crawling out from underneath the cabbage heads! And they'll be wearing mullet haircuts and drinking beer for breakfast. But it fails to tell an engaging story. There is a flimsy bit of plot: Polle has a work-related accident, and his mates tell him that he stands to receive a massive compensation cheque from the insurance company, mainly so that he will pay their rounds. Then gold-digging skank Lilian tries to get Polle to marry her by pouring washing-up liquid in his kex so that he thinks they've had sex. Yes, really. And that's pretty much it.

Much as I like the Snave world, the movie sucks. It just goes to show once more that you can't make a watchable movie without an excellent script.

The title is a play on "Pulp Fiction", by the way.
