Jack is pleased with himself for the first ime in years. He has decided to stop fucking anything with a pulse and also to cut back on his eager and enthusiastic drug use. Then his best friend crashes into a moose in the middle of the night on the Swedish border. He is found with a hoof buried in his forehead and 2.5 kilos of cocaine in the trunk. Over the next 24 hours, Jack loses his house, his girlfriend leaves him and takes their daughter with her. And as he is about to find out: when you think you have hit rock bottom, it can always get worse.
Cool story bro, walked out.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Not anywhere near crazy enough to earn that title, but delivers as a character driven and surprisingly moving thriller.
Dark Norweigan crime caper, was enjoyable enough if a little muddled a times, and you never quite buy in to some of the characters doing what they do.
For fans of Euro crime.
With a title like that, you'd better be fairly confident that your project is going to be good, otherwise you're going to be drowned in a crushing onslaught of irony. 'Fuck up, indeed', will scoff the critics if this effort wasn't going to follow the trend of recent Scandinavian productions that buck the idea of previous suggestions that all there was to the place was Ikea and unreasonably hot sheds.
Of course, with the Dragon series, Headhunters, The Killing and the like all doing excellent business and receiving various amounts of critical acclaim, expectations might reasonably be higher for this than normal. Granted, we all know that Sweden isn't Norway which also isn't Denmark or Finland etc etc, but for…
Same crew and almost same casting as in the tv-show 'Dag'.
Not half as funny as though. Watch 'Dag' instead.
Forgot to make it funny.
This Norwegian movie is one of the most schizophrenic I've seen.
