      Audience Member Odd black comedy from Scandinavia Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Dirty film filled with so much negativety it's funny. Short, and fittingly so. It's few or none unnecessary moments. At times very funny with much help from fantastic charcters. This film is a lot like "You really got me", maybe with a hint of Leigh's "Naked" as well. Often bizarre and strange but always entertaining. Probably Sletaune's best flick, but it's close to mentioned "You really got me". An odd black comedy that's definitely worth a shot of you like that kind of stuff. 7.5 out of 10 barf stains. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review dave j Thursday, May 13, 2010 (1997) Junk Mail (In Norwegian with English subtitles) THRILLER/ COMEDY People who're familar with films such as "The Bicycle Thief" and "The Third Man" should be familiar with the term "neo- realist" in which the film uses actual landscapes and no props- that everything that is filmed is on an actual realistic fashion!! At the time that I saw this film, didn't care too much about the story or that he's not the most likable mail man whose expected to garner any awards as the best mail man in the world, but was most engaged in outlook, the dirtiest and darkest enviroments, for which all of Norway is not like this at all!!! I definitely don't want this guy handling my mail because he takes harmless liberties which can get him fired in any civilize enviroment- this is the result of the shoddy treatment as well as the low pay from it's people he serves. Very amusing!! 3.5 out of 4 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Kanonbra,Norsk lowlife har vel aldri vært skildret med større varme enn her.Helt fantastisk historie,og knall karaterer hele veien.HELT NYDELIG om norsk white trash! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best Norwegian movies ever made. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member an odd little Norwegian movie. i was surprised when i found this to be a dark comedy rather than the usual drama i expected. the scene with the drug addicts robbing the mail man was hilarious beyond belief.

      Globe and Mail Rated: 3/4 Apr 12, 2002 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times It's a film about a voyeur, and it appeals to the voyeur in us: We don't like Roy or approve of him, but we watch, fascinated, because he lives so casually outside the rules. Rated: 3/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review James Berardinelli ReelViews Rated: 3/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Mike Davies Birmingham Post Director Pal Sletaune fuses a blackly comic thriller with an offbeat unsentimental love story, laced with a vein of cruel humor and grim cynicism to first class effect.
