Hard to understand the protagonist's reasoning
20 September 2015 | by peefynSee all my reviews

I like the premise of this movie. The undercover squad's "actor" with his troubled past getting in over his head and having to make some hard choices. It's not ground breaking, but it's enough for an interesting story. His relationship with his mother is at times interesting, and we learn about his father works too.

Sadly it all falls apart when the main character, Hans Petter, keeps making really dumb choices for no apparent reason. At some point you just have to assume it's because of his troubled past (or "something like that"), but then it makes to sense he would get to where he is. He could have easily avoided lots of trouble by thinking things through just a little bit, and that makes it frustrating to watch.

I'm not expert in how they speak (spoke) in the Oslo drug scene, but I had a hard time believing some of the lines spoken by the actors.
