[the ferry has already left the dock and sailed a few meters, with Doffen, Nybakken and Jimmy's car still a good distance away the edge of the dock]
We'll make that ferry.

For first I just started to watch this film to improve my Norwegian language skills. I have seen lots of Norwegian films during in the last two years since I have started to learn the language, and to be honest the most of them was not so mention-able (expect the dramas and the comedies)... After the reviews I have expected some sort of a mix of the Frech taxi and the American Cannonball Race filmed among the beautiful Norwegian landscape. Actually I worried a bit, because I afraid it will be just a Nordic remake of those too film. But the Børning was just right. It did not wanted to be "more" than a comedy with good stunt driver work and with some gasoline-addict drive movie. I enjoyed it, it was absolutely entertaining. I would like to emphasis the genius of the actors. Lots of well- known Norwegian actors, for ex. Anders Baasmo Christiansen's (he can be familiar for the fans of the most talented Norwegian TV-series DAG) or Otto Jespersen (the "Trollhunter")... In addition the fun and the "car-porn" sometime the move has bit more deep meaning. I mean the relationship between father and daughter or the importance of friendship. Vaules that we generally overlook. I recommend the movie for wider range of audience, not just the hardcore fans of the Scandinavian films. To summarize it (in Norwegian to stylish) : Bra jobb! Det var gøy!:)
