Norwegian Movies worth watching - Trailers

Dead Snow
Nazi zombies? Oh, yes! The setup is simple enough: a group of eight Norwegian medical students are headed to a remote cabin in the mountains for some R&R over their Easter break, seven of them travelling by car while the eighth opts for a lengthy cross country hike. The seven pass the time waiting for their final friend in typical fashion - beer, sledding and flirtation - until tension over her failure to arrive on time begins to creep in and the mood finally tips over the edge thanks to a mysterious stranger who arrives with a local tale of Nazi torture, stolen treasure, and a squad of missing soldiers. Cue the carnage.

Norwegian Ninja
The producers of Dead Snow have enabled the creation of Norwegian Ninja, which is actually, amazingly, sort of based on a true story. In real life Arne Trehold was a Norwegian diplomat exiled after being convicted of working for the Soviets during the Cold War. In the film, he’s not a spy, but a patriotic, heroic leader of a ninja clan.

The Troll Hunter
A trio of student film makers striking out to the remote parts of Norway on assignment. Their task: Find and question the illegal poacher roaming the region taking down bears - a closely regulated animal population - as he goes. With the help of local hunters they track the man down, a solitary soul named Hans who roams the countryside in his battered landrover and pungent trailer. But once they finally get Hans to talk what they find is not at all what they expect. Because, you see, while Hans is indeed a hunter - and one who works resolutely off the books - bears are not his quarry. No, the bears are a cover up. Hans' real targets are trolls. Real trolls. Enormous brutes who roam the forests and mountains of the far north of Norway, their existence carefully covered up by a secret government agency.

Pathfinder
This is the story of a young boy 1000 years ago who finds himself fighting alone against the killers of his mother, father and little sister. It's part epic legend on a small scale and part coming-of-age. Whatever you choose to call it, Pathfinder is an exciting and moving tale. The story is set in the northern-most reaches of what is now Norway amongst the nomadic family groups of the Sami, who hunt and herd reindeer. The landscape is beautiful, but harsh and frigid.

A skeleton walks into a bar and ask the Bartender: “Do you serve skeletons here?”

Times being what they are the wily Bartender replies: “sure, we serve anyone.”

The skeleton hands the man a silver and says: “Fine, I’ll have a pitcher of beer…and a mop”

Flåklypa grand prix/Pinchcliffe grand prix
Flåklypa Grand Prix (released in the United Kingdom as an English dubbed version under the title Pinchcliffe Grand Prix) is a Norwegian stop motion-animated feature film directed by Ivo Caprino. It was released in 1975 and is based on characters from a series of books by Norwegian cartoonist and author Kjell Aukrust. It is the most widely-seen Norwegian film of all time, having sold some 5.5 million tickets since its release to a population which currently numbers just 4.7 million.
In the town of Flåklypa, the inventor Reodor Felgen lives with his animal friends Ludvig (a nervous, pessimistic and melancholic hedgehog) and Solan(a cheerful and optimistic magpie). Reodor works as a bicycle repairman, though he spends most of his time inventing weird Rube Goldberg-like contraptions. One day, the trio discover that one of Reodor's former assistants, Rudolf Blodstrupmoen has stolen his design for a race car engine and has become a world champion Formula One driver. Did not find a trailer for this one, but here is a clip. Also added an amateur movie with the beautiful Flåklypa theme and some norwegian scenery.

Valhall
Thor, the god of thunder, and his companion, Loki, take the two Viking children Tjalvi and Röskva with them across the rainbow bridge to Asgard, legendary land of the Norse gods. Here the children are put to work as servants to the gods. But soon Tjalvi and Röskva meet Quark, a naughty little giant child, and together the three children revolt against the gods' tyranny. They run away and build a wooden cottage, of their own out in the forest. Unfortunately Thor discovers their hiding place. Wanting to take Quark back to where he came from, he forces the children on a journey to the land of the giants. Here Tjalvi and Röskva are involved in a fantastic combat between gods and giants - a combat in which the children come to play a crucial role. Valhall is denish, but was a scandinavian collaberation project and its based on norse mythology, so I thought I would include it. All in all; an amazing movie. Did not find a trailer but linked the first part.
