Alma gets a job as a cashier at the local store, but in Norway you need to be 18 years old to sell alcohol. Alma is only 15.
i saw this movie in nyc for the film festival. this is one beautiful
movie. i wish i could describe the beautiful, daring way the filmmakers
captured the story and the scenery. it is very hard to watch movies
that have good acting but this film certainly does. i couldn't believe
it when the director said these actors had never done this before. i
was completely surprised. funny that she also said the leading girl had
not told her parents yet! very good thing it was such a wonderful job
of acting or she might have been busted.
i also loved the humor, especially from the mother. I thought it was
great how the sisters and friends are so ridiculous and yet sad and
delightful. great job very good! thank you for being a voice that has
some unique style!i hope the film will be able to play in America? are
there plans for that? anymore film festivals? i also hope there is a
way that i can purchase this film.
