Storyline

Selma's mother died giving birth to her, and Selma's step aunt is living proof that men only cause trouble. So the 11 year old girl makes a deal with her best friends that they will stay away from boys and dedicate their lives to science. And by the way, Selma was probably born on another planet and not meant to fall in love with anyone. But what happens when her friends break the pact, and she actually meets a boy who's not like the rest? A beautiful story about exploring and finding out about life and what you want, and how difficult it can be sometimes. Especially when "nature" works against your principles and beliefs...

Too simple movie from a director who's capable of more
3 January 2006 | by pcf-2See all my reviews

"Ikke naken" disappointed me. Here's why: The director's 1998-movie "Bare skyer beveger stjernene" was a beautiful little piece about a girl dealing with her brother's death while the family temporarily disintegrates. At the same time she meets a boy and finds some sort of first bonding/love. Sounds simple, but it really worked, due to solid natural sounding dialogue, somber editing and not too much over-acting (even from the children's main characters). Actually it's one of the better Norwegian movies from the 90's, and quite underestimated.

This movie, however, lacks the good script, the child actors are not able to deliver the lines in a natural way, the editing is over-simplified (I know it's more of a children's movie, but still) and the music is just too much, beautiful as it may be.

In short: It lacks a bit of subtlety and nuance, and it's obvious where it's going. I'm usually quite tolerant with movies, but this one started to really bore me after 30-40 minutes. Maybe children will like it more? Also, huge parts of the dialogue have been re-recorded/dubbed, and you find yourself getting seriously annoyed about how little synchronized it is. At points it looks like the actors originally spoke a different language, then were dubbed to Norwegian. This, of course, contributes to taking you out of the cinema-experience.

Finally I should complain about the lack of any subtitles on the DVD - don't the Norwegian distributors want to sell films outside of the country?
