not a filmographic or scriptous hairraiser, but nice
18 October 2019 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

I dove into this one due to a well made poster, and interesting plot summary, and it ended up quite satisfying. thats due to good acting, and a phonomenal choice of music that makes this rather dull political fight into a well ducted and freestreaming experience to watch.

school systems are different wherever you go, the us system are and the dc system are far away from the norwegian schoolsystem, and when i see difficult it is to change a simple thing, i do understand why they fight and also why the majority give up already in the start pit. i will say norwegian schools are better organized , they are free and you have the opportunity to choose from a young age.

if youre in for a filmatic feinschmaecker, just pass this one , because this is a film that screams ''we shall win'' from start to end. the grumpy old man thinks there are just a bit to much '' as prescribed''-in the script, in this movie, but its entertainment for a lacy autumn afternoon in the couch for me and my wife. a 6 out of ten it is.
