Storyline

The life of 6th grader Terkel changes drastically when he causes the suicide of a girl who has a crush on him when he call her a fat cow. Suddenly he not only has to deal with his annoying little sister, his one-word father (No!), his mother's bizarre rants and his alcoholic and violent uncle Stewart, now he also has to deal with death threats from a stalker and his best friend distancing himself. On the plus side his two bullies think he is awesome and there is a new cool teacher, and he can of course always ask his uncle Stewart for help - kind of. It all culminates in a school trip.

Hilarious animation!
21 October 2005 | by StibbertSee all my reviews

Terkel i Knibe is a great movie. I saw the movie with Norwegian dubbing. I'm generally against dubbing, but this movie is an exception. Aksel Hennie does a great voice-job. The setting and theme of this movie is pretty universal. All you need to do is to change the language and the story, setting and lines will work in any western country.

The film is about Terkel and his complicated life. It shows some of the things a 6th grader today will have to cope with. It's a great script. It brings up the subject of harassment, witch in Norway and possibly also Danmark is a very hot subject. It shows an exaggerated picture of todays kids, but if you think about it it's not really that far from the truth. The way the kids act and speak could actually be the case. This movie contains elements that goes deeper than the superficial comedy. Never the less it's a crazy movie and should be enjoyed as one. It's an animation about kids, however I would look upon this as more of an adult movie. Yes, it was rated low, but it contains violence and jokes I doubt an eight year-old would get. I think it would be funnier for teenagers and enlightening for adults.

The animations are great. It's thought through and cool. The characters are easy to recognize and it's just detailed enough. The voice-job was great on the Norwegian version and I expect nothing less of the Danish one.

The score is good. Bo Rasmussen has made a nice cartoonish, yet serious score. It's funny and dramatic and builds up the mood. The songs in the movie are also good and funny.

Terkel i knibe is a good movie about that's funny, yet serious if you look deeper. It got drive and there is something happening from the very beginning all till the end. Have no fear... You're in for a good time!
