Trivia

For the scene where Rolandsen has deserted to live on the uninhabited island, trained sea lions from a company in Switzerland were freighted in water tanks to the location in Northern Norway. On the day of shooting, the sea lions didn't want to come out from their water tanks to do their part. The entire crew and actor were on stand by, waiting for the sea lions to become familiar to the environment so they could shoot the scene. The sea lions never came out and they had to send them back home to Switzerland. A couple of weeks later, trained sea lions from a company in Belgium were sent to the same location to do the scene, hopefully with a better result. The sea lions trained in Belgium didn't have stage fright so the scene could be successfully done. See more »

Absolutely terrible!!
8 August 2000 | by action-6See all my reviews

"Telegrafisten" is one of the worst movies that I`ve ever seen and this is how Norwegian movies mostly are: pis# poor! The movie is based on a poor book, has a poor script, bad directing, terrible actors and a totally uninteresting story taking place on a small island in the northern part of Norway. We were forced to watch this crap at school last year, and I recommend all of you to steer clear of this guff.
