Trivia

Rosemari and Unn Tove are seen packing Rosemari's sleeping bag, which is of the brand Ajungilak. Ajungilak used to have a factory in Hønefoss, where the movie plays, and it is also seen mentioned in the newspaper, in an article on the same page as the one depicting the finding of the baby at the hotel.

A gem of an emotional roller-coaster comedy
26 September 2016 | by OJTSee all my reviews

I've loved every single one of Sara Johnsen's movies, ever since the first, "Kissed by winter" ("Vinterkyss"). I equally liked "Upperdog" and "All that matter is past" ("Uskyld"), which I all voted 8/10 for. And blimey, "Framing mom" ("Rosemari") is simply equally good!

Though very different form the others, Framing mom is a fresh and funny, yet sore and heartfelt drama-comedy with dark background.

Not to say too much, the film starts off with the bride, Unn Tove, finding nothing less than a baby on the toilet floor in the crappy wedding hotel. 16 years later the girl, >Rosemari, turns up upon her doorstep, in need to find her biological parents. The film has become a funny, touching story about how sex, lies and biology created one of life's beautiful flowers, named Rosemari.

Obviously this is not a certain recipe for a happy story. And the film is basically an emotional roller-coaster. Sometimes beautiful, sometimes raw, sometimes awkward, sometimes hilarious. Great acting and a well written script makes sure for a good time out at the movies.

Laila goody rally steals the show, though debuting Ruby Dagnall is a breath of fresh air as and actor. Tuva Novotny is perfectly cast as Unn Tove, but there is also an actor in addition to these which really amazes. I better not specify that more here, in danger of making a spoiler.

With the fourth 8/10-films in a row, Sara Johnsen is a sure bet whenever she makes a film. Sara Johnsen is at the moment Norway's greatest feature film filmmaker, and I'll look forward to her next outing.
