Cop meets his past in underworld Oslo
22 January 2007 | by johno-21See all my reviews

I recently saw this at the 2007 Palm Springs International Film Festival. The story is by Harald Rosenløw-Eeg who previously wrote the internationally popular film Hawaii, Oslo. This crime drama out of Norway is about a rouge undercover cop comes from a home who's mother is an alcoholic and father has committed suicide but with determination to make something out of himself he has recently graduated from the police academy and has gone into the URO narcotics unit as a rookie working undercover. His failure to follow rules of procedure and his aggressive tactics bring him scorn and punishment from within his department. He also finds himself in the drug dealing underworld of a friend he's known since childhood. It's a good premise for a crime drama and the story moves along well with interesting characters but it's a little far-fetched and simplistic too. Nicolai Cleve Broch stars. A fairly impressive debut feature film by it's director Stefan Faldbakken. It's worth checking out and I would give it a 7.5 out of 10.
