Patrik Syversen and Nini Bull Robsahm's romantic comedy previously referred to in these parts as Help, We're In The Film Business
- a literal translation of the Norwegian title - has gone and gotten itself a new international title and a new trailer to go with it.
Now known outside of Norway as You Said What?
the Norwegian trailer for the picture arrived on the scene on Friday. But given that this is quite a dialogue driven comedy it didn't make a whole lot of sense to run that version and now patience has been rewarded with the premiere of the English friendly version.
Glenn has been dumped by his girlfriend. He is lonely, and terribly
difficult to deal with. He lives in a commune with three other slackers
in their late twenties. To cheer him up, his buddies get a brilliant
idea. How about organizing a fakte audtion for a non-existing feature
film? The role to be advertised will include all the qualities Glenn is
looking for in a girl, and maybe he will find a new girlfriend during
the audition rounds. Under the cover of making a film, the boys arrange
fictitious casting sessions. After a series of unsuccessful auditions,
they find Linda, a girl that Glenn falls for immediately. So much so
that he offers her the part in order to be able to hang out with her.
Not the smartest move ever. As a relationship starts developing between
the two, questions arise. Like, when will shooting start? What's the
budget like? Who will play the other roles? It all culminates when it
turns out that Linda's mother is a wealthy investor who insists on
providing capital for the production. To keep up appearances and to save
what may potentially develop with Linda, Glenn and the boys have to
start their production and actually make the film.
Made very clear in the opening scenes of the trailer is the fact that resemblances to Takashi Miike's Audition
are 100% intentional. Also clear? The creators of Dead Snow
do not take themselves seriously at all. Clearest of all? Peter Stormare looks fucking awesome riding on the back of a homemade dragon. Starpower!
