Storyline

When bears are found dead in Norway, students from Volda University (Thomas, Johanna and cameraman Kalle) decide to investigate. They stalk the trail of the mysterious hunter Hans, expecting to find an explanation for the killings. The reluctant Hans tries to flee from the youngsters but then agrees to let them film him in action, provided they follow his orders. Soon the trio of students learns that Hans is actually a troll hunter working for a secret government agency. Further, several dangerous trolls have escaped from their territory and Hans is assigned to eliminate them. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

There are two ferry routes from Volda: one north-west to Lauvstad, one south-west to Folkestad. The protagonists drive their vehicles onto the Lauvstad ferry, but shortly afterward cross into the next county on the E39, which is the road leading south from Folkestad. See more »

Quotes

Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg: [Speaking at a televised press conference] Few people find power grids attractive. I certainly don't. Norwegians are pro-electricity but against power lines. That won't work in the long run. Norway has trolls, so more power lines are needed. That's just the way it is.

A stunning Norwegian masterpiece.
8 February 2011 | by UnholyOneSee all my reviews

I've been looking forward to this ever since I first heard about it, it sounded fantastic. A group of three university students are making a documentary about a series of mysterious bear killings, but soon discover that it isn't bears doing the killings but trolls, actual real Norwegian trolls.They start to follow a mysterious hunter, who they soon learn is a government paid troll hunter. It is very well made with excellent effects considering the budget. The trolls are brilliantly designed and very diverse, with a traditional 'fairy tale' look and the film delves deep into the whole troll mythology. The cave scene was very well done too and unbelievably tense and the climax is well worth waiting for. I honestly can't remember the last time I enjoyed a film as much as this, it really is that good, with some very good performances and stunning Norwegian scenery. I absolutely loved it, although it won't be to everyones taste. I am sorely tempted to give it 10/10 for pure entertainment value. In one word, amazing.
