Two words: Stig Inge. Another in the line of Norwegian films about odd friends (see Elling). Here a couple of friends (Kristoffer and Geir) work together hanging billboards around town and use their freedom to perform Jackass like stunts for Kristoffer's video memoir. The two find a place to live as roommates with Stig Inge, who happens to be a bit of a recluse. It is an odd pairing and when Kristoffer's memoirs get picked up by a local TV channel for airing, everything becomes a little bit weird in the relationships. This is not high art, but it is a well developed story of friends that mature and realize why they are friends.
