A weird road-movie from Norway. The roads are full of snow and the vehicle is a snowmobile. After a nervous breakdown and breaking up with his girlfriend, Jomar isolates himself from everone he knows. Things change when he learns he has a 4 year old son. He decides to go see him, meets some more weird characters on the way and burn a few houses. Decent movie coming from the north.
Michael Winterbottom must be on horse tranquillizer while shooting this. Yes, he always tries something different with every movie he makes but this one stands out among his other works, being ordinary. It's too mainstream for Winterbottom. It's a decent drama-thriller, telling the story of a family, trying to deal with the loss of their mother. The name is Genova, because that's where the father and two daughters end up moving. It's ok if he wanted to shoot a "calm" movie for a change but it's bad news if he is going mainstream.
