In this "true" story about the events that lead to Arne Treholts arrest for treason back in 1984, we are served a spectacular epic, with some nice stop-motion effects(in our days of CGI) and lots of absurd humor. It's not often we are served something really original, when it comes to movies. Almost every movie is either a remake or a reboot, but this! A secret ninja organization located right outside of Oslo, with the late king Olav as their leader, Trond-Viggo Torgersen really did a good job with that role. Mads Ousdal is great as Arne Treholt, he actually reminds me of Harrison Ford sometimes, but the character they've created for this movie also is great. The way he puts a cigarette in his mouth almost makes smoking look cool, and the rest of his supernatural powers, disappearing in a cloud of smoke, putting clothes on and of... It's a really amusing movie, and truly refreshing in these days, so was Inception, but personally, I think this concept was greater! Lots of bizarre humor, and ridiculous situations, an absurd masterpiece!
