The kings of the village of Drabant

After 24 years, the freaks Odd and Geir thank for Norway's most expensive film. Letting Jimmy loose is the final part of a broadly constructed generational saga.


[drabantrealism] The childhood friends Odd and Geir were born in Gateavisa in 1982, in the two-page cartoon "Two tired types fire a bull". 24 years later, the simple hash humor of Christopher Nielsen has not only grown into the full-length animated movie Release Jimmy Free, which premiered Friday 21.

I can not think of anyone who has written better drabantby dialogue. He is unsurpassed, says Frobenius.
