Why 9? Well it takes a lot to watch a film spoken in Sammi with
Norwegian subtitles - when you don't speak either language - and come
out of the cinema saying "Now that was a good film".
It's based on a true story set in the North of Norway 143 years ago of a Swedish store owner and his desire to supply alcohol to a growing number of Sammi men versus a Sammi wife and her desire to keep the men off the liquor.
It is a great tale and the acting is top drawer. The final scenes are especially poignant.
The irony of a Govt, Church and Business community intent on ensuring the supply of alcohol to a Sammi tribe struggling to cope with the concept of capitalism in a country that today preaches the exact opposite will not be lost on you.
Watch it. You will not regret it.
