Impressing add to Norwegian filmography
28 September 2006 | by espressomaskinSee all my reviews

Sønner is another proof that the Norwegian film industry is growing to a respectable level. In Sønner we get to know Lars and his discovery of a older man's abuse of young boys. His reaction and how he confronts the issue evolves to be a brutal conflict, seen as assaulter by the police, and as heroes by the public.

The movie is at some level disgusting, but a realistic portray of a 25 year old man's revenge and hostility against pedophiles. Excellent acting by somewhat unknown actors, and commitment by difficult roles as a pedophile, and the abused. The script is beautifully written as we begin to sympathize for all parts.

An impressing contribution to the Norwegian filmography.
