|Normal reaction after a norwegian movie: Curl yourself into a ball and stare blankly into |
the ground as your sanity slips into unknown places even chutulu is afraid of.
However. Me just being that good a friend decided to wade through the heaps of mind-scarring hell called "norwegian movie section" at the local library, and write a list of movies less about making you cry (not because the movie has a sad story. But because it's just a plain sad attemt at being a movie) and more about actually being a good movie!
Thus i'll post 2 movies for each part.
First off, i'll start with a known and well liked movie:
This movie follows the life of the Norwegian resistance group (Milorg) during WW2, and in particular the life of Max Manus (a name better suited for a detective noir movie). Milorg and Max Manus were real, and the movie is more or less based on truth and actual events.
The movie has won several awards, including the prestigious "Not being a steaming pile of shit 2009" award.
If you enjoy a personal up close and realistic war movie about a resistance group, then this is a recommendation!
The Bothersome Man

I can't really say anything about the setting and plot as even the slightest hint is best savored as your mind becomes numb and you can't separate reality and fiction, possibly creating a hilarious encounter with the cops that end not so hilarious.
But to sum up. If you want something different (DEEP/deep even) then this is also one to watch.
That's it for now folks. Next up i'll cover a couple of horror movies from Norway.
