Storyline

Amalie works hard to fit in to a world where having it all is what matters - looks, money and dancing skills. But, when her father goes bankrupt, life as she knows it falls apart. At school, Amalie tries to pretend like nothing has happened. Then she meets Michael, the street-dancer, who is different from any other person she has met. Torn between her new life with Michael and the constant jealousy of her old friends, Amalie finds herself stuck in a continuous web of lies. How long can she keep the two worlds apart, and will she dare to be true to herself in the end? Written by Martin Bull-Gundersen

Trivia

When Maja Lunde was writing Battle she came across a video of Lisa Teige (Amalie) in the popular web series Skam. She immediately thought that Teige would be able to play the role of Amalie perfectly. When Lunde discovered that she could dance as well, she knew she was right for the role. See more »

A beautiful ending
12 December 2018 | by mikaelsiirilaSee all my reviews

Battle has its clichés but it works emotionally. The juxtaposition of social classes in Battle is built with the usual caricatures: the wealthy appear vain, jealous and competitive while the regular people seen warmhearted, social and empathetic.

Despite the simplifications, the main characters feel authentic and the story has a pleasant, slow and believable space. A lot of the story takes place within the characters.

The final dance scene is very emotionally captivating and a beautiful finale to an otherwise slowly-evolving movie.
