Well played norwegian family picture with breathtaking nature shots!
31 October 2005 | by TomWilhelmSee all my reviews

This movie is perfect for all you families out there who is in need of some sound family entertainment for the kids. This kid has to move to a farm in his summer vacation and don't get to go to Norway Cup as he had planned for. Out on the country there is bad cellphone reception, cowsmell and inbreed farmers as far as the eye can see. The family Volvo get stolen and the foreigners in the small town automatically gets blamed. From there is a chase to discover what truly happened and this is a movie the kids will absolutely eat up! Næss delivers another breathtaking picture with awesome norwegian nature just as in Ulvesommer! See this movie and you won't be disappointed!
