In a bed at a treatment centre, a severely disabled boy lies. Nobody understands him. Everybody has given him up, except for one person. A warm film about the fact that solutions are not always the solution.
In the shadows of the outskirts of Oslo, every criminal has their place until the economical meltdown. The luxury prostitute Wendy might have the key to the problem, or at least to the heart of the bank, the criminals and even the police.
The life of a family spanning five generations in the 20th century Europe split in half by WW2, centering around the half brothers Barnum and Fred growing up together in Oslo; Barnum with his father, Fred searching for his.
Nicolai Cleve Broch,
35 years old Eik has to choose between life or death, but sometimes this choice isn't that obvious. A suicide pact goes wrong, and Eik has to find out whether he wants to follow his dream or his mother's.
Sex in the city?! Have you seen the series or what?
If the creators of "Seks som oss" have gotten inspiration from somewhere, it's the English series "Cold Feet", and the intro-part of the show is for instance very much the same. But "Sex and the city"? Hello?! It's not supposed to resemble that at all, and I can't really imagine where you got that from! The series, continuing in the autum 2005 and spring 2006 is a solid norwegian production, driven by a group of somewhat different, but all good actors. It's easy to like, and where other norwegian series are too serious and too old fashioned, "Seks som oss" is modern, fresh and not too far fetched. As you can see I disagree with the other guy writing here, and as mentioned I don't really understand the comparison made with "Sex in the city", which is a series driven almost only by women and where shopping, sex and humour plays a important if not crucial part. That's not how I see "Seks som oss" at all! Pepople who know norwegian films and theater, have also recognised very good and solid other norwegians actors, stepping in and doing small parts. And what is this talk about TV monopoly? "Seks som oss" airs at TV 2, the largest and first for that matter, private TV channel in Norway. And I will go so far as to label "Seks som oss" one of the best, if not THE best, series ever run on TV 2!
