A little piece of Norway.

Jeg har merket at når jeg er ute i den store verden blir norske ting mye viktigere.

At Kristoffer Hivju og Ingrid Bolsø Berdal spiller i henholdsvis Game of Thrones og Westworld blir påpekt hver gang jeg ser en ny episode.

Det er mye som har blitt vist i Norge som jeg ikke har hatt mulighet til å se i utlandet, det er derfor flott at fler og fler serier og filmer blir tilgjengelig på Netflix o.l.

 

When I am out in the world I feel that Norwegian things gets more important.

I get excited every time Kristoffer Hivju and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal gets screen time in Game of Thrones and Westworld, and have to inform others that they are in fact Norwegian.

The last couple of years there have been several tvseries and films made in Norway that I have not been able to watch, but I doscovered that many of them have now been introduced on Netflix and other streaming sites.

This is a few of my favourites that I have watched recently.

Vikingane/Norsemen:

Set in 790AD, Norsemen features the daily challenges of people living in a small Viking village, from power struggle, brother rivalry, gender equality, to betrayal and friendship.

Okkupert/Occupied:

In the near future, Norway is occupied by Russia on behalf of the European Union, due to the fact that the newly elected environmental friendly Norwegian government has stopped the all important oil- and gas-production in the North Sea.

Nobel :

Two stories carefully intertwine as a returning soldier and family man becomes a pawn in a political international game. As the stakes grow higher he is forced to discover just how far one should go in the name of peace.

Skam/Shame:

The story of young teenagers and pupils on Hartvig Nissens upper secondary school in Oslo, and their troubles, scandals and everyday life. Each season is told from a different person’s point of view.

Shame is sold to USA and it will premiere on Facebook Watch in 2018.
