great, amazing, lovely...
2 February 2004 | by bluejuice-1See all my reviews

This is one the best documentary's i have ever seen! The music by KAADA is simply great and brings an unusual atmosphere to the story. The characters truly touched me, and the last scene brought tears to my eyes. The director has something to tell and he can truly tell it with style and movement. It goes beyond the usual documentary style with it's funky dream like fiction scenes which takes you inside the characters in way I haven't seen elsewhere in a documentary. This is a remarkable debut by a young talent which I hope to see more from... The director also made some truly sweet commercials for norwegian television...
