When his mother, who has sheltered him his entire 40 years, dies, Elling, a sensitive, would-be poet, is sent to live in a state institution. There he meets Kjell Bjarne, a gentle giant and female-obsessed virgin in his 40s. After two years, the men are released and provided with a state-funded apartment and stipend with the hope they will be able to live on their own

" The Ups: A geniune feel-good movie that also uses highlight persons with special needs in a leading role. Likeable acting with fun dialogue and unique characters. Refreshingly without a morale lesson at the end. The Downs: Some strange Norwegian social department stuff and dialogue that will probably be more out-of-this-world for foreigners than starships in science-fiction. "
