TROLLHUNTER (Threatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.9|5.0 Starsìì

Trollhunter—a mockumentary (a film that is presented like a documentary, except completely fictional in character)—is interesting and worth at least an investigation if for no reason other than having the experience. However, don’t expect to be entertained or to take a ‘Wow, that was great’ home. It’s not that type of creative effort. It is slow and…different. It is a creative work in itself which requires an artistic eye to appreciate.

Storyline

Students meet trollhunter Hans (Otto Jespersen) and ask if they can follow him with a camera to film his efforts.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Director Andre Ovredal for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producer Marcus B. Brodersen for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Hans/trolljegeren (Otto Jespersen), Thomas (Glenn Erland Tosterud), Johanna (Johanna Mørck), Kalle (Thomas Alf Larsen), Malica (Urmila Berg-Domaas), Finn Haugen (Hans Morten Hansen), Polsk bjørnejeger (Robert Stoltenberg), E-verkssjef (Knut Nærum), and Campingplasseier (Eirik Bech).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s a film that originates in Norway and it’s a quick, unforgettable piece of entertainment that gives a small look into Norweigian culture and manner of entertaining.
