I almost pied my pants laughing because of the bird watcher after a couple of minutes, but then I saw Else Kaas Furuseth and thought "hell no"! Nevertheless, I continued to watch, and it proved quite entertaining. Funny.

A fun take on Norwegian stoicism and quirkiness seen through the lens of curling. Bizarre characters and fine physical acting by all.

Fascinating that you can take "too serious" as a Norwegian trait and make humor out of it, but that is exactly what happens in this farce. In the tradition of Dodgeball or The Big Lebowski, this comedy features a sport, but don't really spend a lot of time playing that game. Instead we get to see the parade of misfits that circle the altar of competition.

Antonsen plays it serious, yet fierce, and drives the story (which he also wrote), while Conradi is his twitchy rival who makes the lamest in-your-face gestures known to man. Also of note is the controlling wife played by Torp, who gives us many hilarious moments.

Watch this at SIFF and absolutely LOVED this movie.

Chock full of kooky but endearing characters with just the right level of zaniness and physical humor. This reminded me a bit of "Dodgeball."
