Some of the characters are based on the animation series "To trøtte typer". It is a norwegian dark comedy and hysterically funny. I guess it will take a while getting used to it, even for a "weird" norwegian like me.

The movie will not be for the masses and you should keep your children away.

I don't really think that english and norwegian humour differs, but Free Jimmy will be weird for sure. :)

I present to you a picture of the characters voiced by the gents :) :

Gorgeous, aren't they? ;)


The movie just came out here (the original version, not the English one), and I might go see it as it's gotten rave reviews. The English version should be out some time after the summer. Personally, I find it hard to imagine how this will translate into English, because the whole thing is just full of Norwegian/Scandinavian stereotypes and so on. I heard that the English version is supposed to take place in London rather than in Norway... which has me wondering how on earth they're going to explain the Lappish mafia and how they ended up in England...

In the thing GTJW posted it said the Lappish Mafia were gonna be Naaaaaarthern blokes - so I presume they'll just be Narthern mafia guys.

Great pic! I wonder who is playing whom. ;)

(Actually would laugh if they weren't playing the ones that look like them.)

I know Free Jimmy isn't going to be released on DVD here until November 2007 (it's been postponed quite a few times now, it was supposed to be out this month), and from what I've read the DVD was going to have both the original and English version. But from what I understood there'd been a bit of trouble with the English version as American critics were complaining about how some of the English/Scottish accents were difficult to understand, and there was a possibillity that some voices were going to be re-recorded with either new accents or new actors, or something to that extent. No idea whether the film will ever be officially released in international cinemas... :?

I'm going to see it as part of Cardiff Film Festival this Thursday. Apparently it's the UK premiere and will be attended by the director & producers (but none of the Gents and no David Tennant either - boo!).
Should be good, really looking forward to it!
