Unexpectedly brilliant!
16 August 2014 | by nbnbfanSee all my reviews

One of the few Norwegian movies that achieves a score higher than 5. In one and a half hour they made a laid back skater interested in cars, and made me laugh throughout the entire movie. Probably movie of the year for my sake, and I really hope they're making a sequel, cause this story can definitely be extended!! The music is perfectly matching the action in every single scene. Speaking of music, if someone has a list of the songs used in this particular movie, I'd be happy to get it :) Cause I'm in love with some of the songs used! With all of that being said, there's a ton of great movies coming out soon, but I highly doubt any of them will be able to top this one. "Børning makes the smell of Norwegian films disappear in the exhaust!"
