If this kid were your classmate in school, you'd avoid him. Doing likewise with the movie won't hurt.

Part deadpan nerd comedy in the Napoleon Dynamite mode, part miserablist childhood saga a la My Life as a Dog, this isn't quite funny or poignant enough to pull off either.

What begins as an amusingly dysfunctional take on the coming-of-age drama... founders when the tone switches to something much darker.

Overlong but intelligently offbeat coming-of-age/family drama.

A pleasant if not entirely successful addition to the Scandinavian tragicomedy genre.
