1979 is ending, the 80s are approaching rapidly. Carl and Robert, two slacker best friends who smoke hashish as a way of cheerful living - have been peddling hashish for a decade, hitting an all time high with this last batch: 45 Kilos of pure, high grade Nepalese Hashish destined for the draught-dry Oslo streets. In their own eyes they are not criminals they simply provide the life-essential drug to a suffering population. But then Glenn comes along, their friend and ambitious financial-backer-destined-to-be-a-yuppie. He has plans to make this deal even bigger than they have been led to believe. Following the delivery of the hashish, the police are on their tail for heroin-smuggling a fact they cannot explain as they both hate heroin and would never touch the drug. Finally they both awake from their self-induced haze, and fight back in a hilarious, suspenseful and dramatic ending.Written by
This is first of all a fun movie about two friends sorely holding on to the happy hashish life of the 70's. The lead role Carl, played by norwegian actor Kristoffer Joner is basically carved for this role and he got the details down and out till' his fingertips. While he and his partner in crime Robert unwillingly distributes heroine, they stumble across some fun and more serious problems. Their moral is put to the test and so are their friendship, what is right and what is wrong in their criminal world that they deny to live in? This movie will show you the darker side of drug abuse, but will also let you sympathise with those on the other side of the law. But don't despair, this movie will not leave you depressed
