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

Movie Reviews (1401-1450) (50 movies items)

" A geniune feel-good movie that also highlight persons with special needs. Likeable acting with fun dialogue and unique characters. Refreshingly without a morale lesson at the end made this film a surprise Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign Film for Norway."
