Short and silly with a touch of darkness. Couple of chuckles.
Finally came around to watching this. I am Norwegian, and that's how I know this movie exists.. There was some talk of this movie before it came out, I mean, almost the whole cast is pretty well known here (in Norway). But after the movie came out, it died down real quick. I was kind of wondering why, and now I know: it's not that great.
It's typically Norwegian-quirky. (sooo many quirky weird movies in Norway) It's a comedy, with some (sort of) seriousness to it. Kind of a mix of feel good and feel bad. Mostly it's pretty silly, but it still has this underlying.. darkness.. ish. I don't know.
The movie has its fun parts. Kaare Conradi is excellent. He is a well known actor in Norway, and he impressed me here. Jon Oigarden is also damn good. It's seems like they were having fun with their parts.
I do think you have to be Norwegian to understand whats funny. Well, at least the stuff I thought was funny. Stuff that will probably get lost in translation. Also, most of the actors here are well known, and that also helps you understand the humor. So yeah, this ones is for Norwegians. But even they will probably not love it.
