Goofs

In the movie, Pedersen's wife leaves for the northern town of Mo i Rana, while in the novel, she goes to the town of Harstad. The director has explained that this change was made because she was a librarian, and that Norway's National Library has a branch in Mo i Rana. However, while the story is set in the 1970s, the National Library in Mo i Rana was not established until 1989. See more »

OK, but misses a few marks
21 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

This movie is quite good, but not quite as good as it could and should have been. The main problem is that AKP-ML only looks like some small comical sect with less than a dozen members. From what I've heard from people that lived in this period, they were actually quite big and made a huge impact on several parts of society, especially for students. I wish this could have been better shown in the movie.

Other than that, there's a lot of good stuff here. While some things are a bit over the top, the story is actually pretty good and the acting is good as well, although seeing Joner in about every Norwegian movie is starting to feel a bit strange. But being the best actor of them all, I guess you can live with that.
