| Charming story, but where's the music?
The second film about Jarle Klepp (The first being "Mannen som elsket Yngve") is a charming story, well acted, actually superbly acted. But the story lacks some of the fun and music score from the first film.

Jeg reiser alene is about Jarle getting to know that a one-night stand he had as a 17 year old rooster has resulted in a now 7 year old daughter. This comes as a chock, but not more than it should. What happens when this daughter is sent on holiday to her newly discovered father?

This film is a character driven story. Well acted (little Lotte is fabulous) and there's good music here too, from back in 1994. The music is what made the first film so great. The time frame was perfect. Here there's too much muzak in between. Of course there's some great music from Pulp (Common people) and several from Bob Hund, but where's the kick we should have gotten from the rest? Well, simply not here.

This film balances between a 6 and a 7. I give it a 7 because of the acting. The story is maybe a bit too thin, and obviously better in a book where you can imagine the things happening, and less successful as a film. A small minus also for some dialects not being easy to understand for everyone. The sound just isn't good enough. Subtitles would have helped. But all in all it was a nice time at the cinemas.
