Quotes

Conductor: [Gunnar has recently pulled the emergency brakes after seeing a man outside the train dressed up as Santa] Okay, my dear mister. You've crossed the line. Mutilating a war veteran, sure. Food poisoning war prisoners? That's okay - we can all have a bad day. But playing with the emergency brakes? It can be all the bloody christmas it wants. I hope you have a really, really good excuse for this!
Gunnar: I saw Santa Claus!

Nothing is what you expect it to be...
14 January 2004 | by zaarqonSee all my reviews

...and this movie easily exceeded my expectations. The fact that it is written and directed by Peter Dalle led me to believe it was in style with other films I'm used to (and bored with) seeing him in. Anyway, I grudgingly went along to see this flick and that I'm glad for. This stuff has humour and depth. 9 out of 10. See it!
