Trivia

To get American band Calexico's permission to use their music in the movie, director Jens Lien went to the US with an unfinished version of the movie on VHS to show the band. The only place with a VCR and TV capable of playing PAL tapes was a nearby video rental store. Soon Calexico and some 30 customers in the store were watching as the director translated the Norwegian dialogue as the movie played. See more »

Great movie with great music
13 February 2010 | by jennyluke-660-782359See all my reviews

Jonny Vang is a comedy about longtime friends involved in a love triangle. Jonny, Tuva and Magnus were all close friends as children. Now that they have grown, Tuva and Magnus are married and have a son. Magnus' recent behavior leads Tuva to believe he is being unfaithful to her. She responds by having an affair with Jonny. Jonny is attempting to launch his own worm farm, but his life goes downhill as soon as he asks Tuva to marry him. I just saw this film with a friend. It is really cool and funny with a great soundtrack by Calexico. The Mexican music scoring Norwegian landscape is great. Those of you who likes laid-back comedies should try to get hold of this DVD. Aksel Hennie is very cool.
