Directed by Hans Petter Moland in 2016, this Norwegian action-packed movie depicts a bloody revenge drama and equally bloody gang-war with the Serbian mafia.
Too much violence seems to make this film nonsensical with a shitty level of black-humour.

I think the people of Norway must enjoy some really black humor. Good movie!

Watch the first two minutes or so of the interview with director Hans Petter Moland in the Special Features before you watch the feature and you'll have some perspective on the film. There are no spoilers in that segment of the interview.

This was pretty good- a bloody, black comedy from Norway.

Stellan Skarsgard is and SHOULD be on more peoples favorite list of actors. He is someone people go " I know him" " I saw him in....??? "..both on this side of the pond and the other.
I swear if you do a google on him you will not believe how many films you have seen him in.
Anyhow, as for this film, I hadnt expected a revenge type movie, with scatterings of Tarentino and Coen brothers mixed in. And as usual, Norwegian films (which are becoming better every year) this one did not fail me.
Be it Norwegian, Swedish, French,Asian,...I swear there are 100 poor Western films made to each " good " film, yet I find pleasure in these foreign films ( and series ) and much less exposure to real DOGS.
Enjoy this film, and be sure to follow up with others.

Director Hans Petter Moland works with one of his favorite actors Stellan Skarsgard to produce a god-father light rather comedic film. Add to the mix, the old German actor Bruno Ganz playing an Albanian mobster. You know, mobsters have very little education, so the director can make you laugh when the hilarious ignorant mobsters talk while awaiting their next hit or kidnapping. Don't take it seriously and just take the opportunity to see some of the best European 20th century actors playing 21st century senior citizens playing rough games.

Egil Dickman: "Pain is just weakness leaving the body." Not good medical advice but funny in its way.

The snowplow driver:
But it is strange to get a prize for doing what you like. I'm just a man who keeps a strip of civilization open … through the wilderness. When I was a kid I liked Indian books … and you can say I have become a kind of… pathfinder. Even though I find the same path again and again.

You are a success, Nils. It's no secret. You have shown it is possible to succeed even if you don't come from Norway. We need people like you. A successful fully integrated immigrant. And "immigrant", it is well meant in this context.
-Well, we're fine, Gail and me. I am probably best at minding my own business.
Yes. Yes, yes, yes... No. If all had that attitude we wouldn't have a democracy.

Why the hell do we get all that snow? I don't know how we stand it. It's snowing all the time.
- It's the welfare. There isn't any hot country that has welfare. When the weather is great you do not need a welfare state. Then you gather a banana and is done with it. What's happening? It's the snow. In Bali, Thailand, Vietnam… people has to fend for themselves.
Spain is on the ass. Portugal is on the ass. Greece is on the ass. Italy is on the ass. It is hot countries. Hospitals have no personnel. The families must come with food. South America is a hole. Africa is a hole. California soon go bankrupt. Sun or welfare.

I rolled them into chicken wire and threw them in the waterfalls. Then the little fish can get in and gnaw the flesh from the bones… so they do not swell. Then they just are there.

I’m going to kill him.
-You? You couldn’t kill anyone.

It must be cold here for a Chinese.

Hey, I just a little moral question for you. Now you are in Norway. This is not a banana republic. Here in Norway we keep our agreements.

As a biologist, I am optimistic. Much is pointing in the right direction. We have become more humane
towards each other and towards animals. The default behavior 100 years ago we now perceive as barbaric. We kill each other in increasingly smaller extent.

The Norwegian Prison:
Does it still hurt in the tooth? Go to a dentist.
-When would I have time for that?
Have you been in a Norwegian prison?
-No, not yet.
You have something to look forward to. Good food. Heating.
-Good food?
You won't believe it. You get wages for jobs there.
-You're kidding me.
I swear! And everyone is friendly and courteous. Guards don't harass you. No rapes. Even the inmates are nice.
-No rapes, nice guards... You don't fool me.
A modern society. Civilized. See, I had all my teeth done.

You might think that my profession is not a creative profession, but that it is. And with such a man as you, we'll go quite traditional about it. I will pull your finger nails, cut your fingers off. I cut your hands off, take your ears and cut your nose off. And exactly that with the nose… you're not going to like.

Imagine if you had to share a son. What kind of people are they?
===
I was at a parents meeting last month, Marit. I was at school / home conversation and went to the fxcking bully seminar. Now you gotta relax. I have a job, which is pissing difficult and demanding. No need to get excited.
-You're not an important business man. You're a criminal.
You know what? You kwow me well. But I also know you. You're not fooling me with your Neo-hippie mittens. I remember when you could go in all stores worldwide… and buy what you wanted. Then there was nothing wrong with the money or anything else. Take your parents' meeting and stuff it so far up your dry, Danish XYZ… you never find it again.
===

Why? Aren't you a kidnapper?
-Not always.
