News & Interviews for Elling
Critic Reviews for Elling
Elling, portrayed with quiet fastidiousness by Per Christian Ellefsen, is a truly singular character, one whose frailties are only slightly magnified versions of the ones that vex nearly everyone.
Touches smartly and wistfully on a number of themes, not least the notion that the marginal members of society ... might benefit from a helping hand and a friendly kick in the pants.
Audience Reviews for Elling
I am really amazed at how much I liked this movie. At first I had my doubts, but then I just found myself unable to turn it off. These two guys were a hoot! I like how it all turned out. Very nice.
Touching and delightful!
Two middle-aged, mentally challenged men team up to live as roommates in urban Oslo. Somehow , their odd, symbiotic relationship allows them to cope with the day-to-day challenges of independent living. Even though their methods might be peculiar, the results are frequently hilarious and sometimes inspirational.
Thank you Norway for this wonderful gem of a film.
As Monk says, no friendship is perfect. A kind, quirky, and quiet look at friendship and mental illness. Long live the Sauerkraut Poet!
