very humorous take on "gangstas" and their own inadequate behaviors. Quite a dyfunctional group of misfits who take on something bigger than they are capable of, yet you just know ONE of them HAS to be smart enough to pull the whole thing off and benefit in some way from their plans.
Not a huge " twist " for an ending but a nice touch.
I must say, I do enjoy the Norwegian, Swiss, Danish humour and films I have discovered over the past year and even more so when I discover MORE from just the previews and/or searching for films available with certain actors in them.
...and much better then most of the straight to formula stuff being put out on straight to DVD in good old U.S of A or Canada.

Fans of Crime/Gangster films would be seriously remiss to overlook this F-in BRILLIANT and at times blackly-hilarious addition to the genre (I'm talking actors-acting-with-voices /subtitled version here; NOT some khadafull dub-job);(pissed-off Norwegians can be awe-inspiring to the non-Nordic; sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-stopping [male or female ~yes, just some well-delivered WORDS can get the ''Boys'' to retreat when you treat a Grrl poorly!!). Homage is payed to Q. Tarantino and other Masters and the return proves that these Scandys are more than pretenders to the Throne (don't flush this one); They are storming your village, Hollywood! (Now that I think about it, those guys will probably make an incredibly shinier, sadly inferior ['specially the aftertaste] 'merican version of this in English soon-'nuff; so just wait, Xenophobes!) SKOL!!!
