Cars and Norway (in that order)
20 November 2016 | by peefynSee all my reviews

I'm not one for car/racing movies, so a big chunk of this movie did not really appeal to me. It's not a long movie, and a lot of it is cars driving on roads. The scenery is often nice, though.

But other than all the shots of cars driving (with some minor action in them), I like how this movie acknowledges the fact that it is Norwegian, and uses it to its advantage. It can't compete with Hollywood blockbusters in their game, but it can be something that's unlikely to come out of Hollywood. Some of this are just references that only Norwegians will understand (like a reference to Flåklypa Grand Prix), but it also shows itself in the mentality of the characters, and in some of the settings.
