Bigger, Longer, Druggier And More Violent. It's The Full Trailer For Norway's FUCK UP.
File away the name 'Øystein Karlsen' for future reference because you'll be hearing it more in coming months. Karlsen is the co-writer and director of popular Norwegian television comedy Dag, a show that is being adapted for US audiences by Fox after two highly successful seasons at home. But before that arrives festival audiences should have the chance to see Karlsen's debut feature Fuck Up on the big screen.
Featuring a cast and crew largely interchangeable with those from the TV show this is clearly the work of a group of people who know and like each other and that energy comes across big time. The first teaser for this one was promising, the full trailer is even better. Check it below.Jack is pleased with himself for the first time in years. He has decided to stop fucking anything with a pulse and also to cut back on his eager and enthusiastic drug use. Then his best friend crashes into a moose in the middle of the night on the Swedish border. He is found with a hoof buried in his forehead and 2.5 kilos of cocaine in the trunk. Over the next 24 hours, Jack loses his house, his girlfriend leaves him and takes their daughter with her. And as he is about to find out: when you think you have hit rock bottom, it can always get worse.
