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.
