A good movie

A couple of years ago, my wife bought me a book written by Jo Nesbø, it was one of these thrillers starring Harry Hole. Eventually, even though I didn’t expect much about it, I thought it was pretty good and I even ended up reading a 2nd book about Harry Hole for which, by the way, they will soon release a movie adaptation starring Michael Fassbender as Harry Hole.  Anyway, I had noticed that ... read more

An impressive and well written piece of work: dissecting the topics of career, ambition and love in the most interesting ways is what this movie succeeds in. It may not be an exemplary piece on ethics and on how our society should work, but it shed light on the more intricate details of human relationships, in terms of professional and more intimate relationships as well as on what friendship can ... read more

Description: Roger seems to be living the dream: a stellar career as headhunter and married to a beautiful wife who deals in art with her own art gallery. Beyond that however, things may not be as simple as they may seem. To fund his excessive lifestyle, he steals precious pieces of art.

From The Superb To The Crap - Movies Seen In 2016 (284 movies items)

"This has to be one of the most satisfying thrillers I've seen, and I was literally smiling at all the plot twists and the rich narrative, while the film ran. It's basically about a recruitment consultant who makes ends meet by stealing expensive works of art. He meets a guy who has an extremely rare piece of art and steals it, but this chap has ulterior motives and goes on his own little headhunt. The first half of this Norwegian movie is what you would expect from this type of thriller. We mee"

Eventually, I think we both enjoyed it, even if the story was sometimes seriously far-fetched.
