very funny and a sensible portrait of young adults!
15 December 2006 | by loika-wolfSee all my reviews

we saw this movie on a kids-filmfestival in vienna and me and my children (son 11, daughter 13) really, really likes these movie! the first statement of my son was: "please, could we buy this film on DVD!"

the story is far-reaching, funny and "very cool" (my son). the camera is watching these young adults very sensible and shows all their problems, dreams, youthfully language and aesthetic codes. it is also a good film about "real" and no-real friends!

it's a great pity that the film is at the moment only in the original norwegian-version, without a (dvd-)version in German or English translation. hopefully we will find this film very soon in German translation!!

explicit recommendation from the age of 11 till ...?
