Beklager. It all started with me writing "Maria Larsson's eviga ögonblick". It is a bad mistake in Norwegian and Swedish to use the possessive apostrophe here. It should only be used if the noun ends with an s-sound.
Correct usage:
Maria Larssons eviga ögonblick (Maria Larsson's eternal moments).
Jerry Buss' basketball-lag.

Tusen takk for din forklaring!
(Thanks for your explanation!)

Din kommentar om "Maria Larssons eviga ögonblick" har inspirert meg til skifte tittelen av dette emnet fra "Norsk Filmdiskusjon" til "Nordisk Filmdiskusjon." :)

"Tack så mycket" Johanna for alle din bidrag til denne emne.
(Thanks Johanna for all of your contributions to this topic/thread.)

Kan du anbefale noen svenske filmer?
(Can you recommend some Swedish films?)

The last svensk film that I watched was "Mitt liv som hund."

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089606/

Jeg likte denne filmen veldig mye.
:)
(I liked this movie a lot.)

Her er linken til noen av svenske filmer jeg kan låne fra Netflix:

Beklager men jeg forstå ikke "sto på svensk." :(

Jeg er litt for sent, men... I just thought I should mention that I had originally copied and pasted "Maria Larsson's eviga ögonblick" in my previous post and this is probably what Aleco was responding to.

I have a bad habit of sometimes posting before I have reviewed what I have written. :oops: Instead of returning to my post several times to make corrections, I need to get into a better habit of clicking on "preview" first. :)

Nei, det var helt greit spør du meg. Du mener vel filmen? er en annen mulighet.

Filmen er faktisk basert på en bok skrevet av Agneta Ulfsäter-Troell, som igjen er basert på en virkelig person i Agnetas familie. Jeg husker ikke tittelen på boka.

Sto på svensk = Written in swedish.

Forøvrig, «orddelingsfeil», som nevnes tidligere i tråden, heter strengt tatt særskrivingsfeil, «orddeling» inkluderer både særskriving, og deling av ord på slutten av en linje med en bindestrek.

Mitt veldig "rough" forsøk på en oversettelse:

Otherwise/"in other respects" «word splitting error(s)», which were mentioned earlier in the thread are called strictly taken strange writing errors, «word splitting» including both strange writing and splitting of a word that ends a line with a hyphen.

Beklager men det var veldig vanskelig for meg. :oops:

The first svensk film listed by netflix is "Anita: Swedish Nymphet (1973)." When I looked up this movie at "The Internet Movie Database" I noticed that under certification these were the ratings:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069718/

Certification: Finland:K-18 (cut) | New Zealand:(Banned) | Sweden:15 | UK:18 | Norway:(Banned)

Anyone know why a movie that is rated as being acceptable for 15 year olds in Sweden and 18 year olds in the UK was banned in Norway? :stunned:

særskriving is not "strange writing", but more like "writing separately", with "sær" translating closer to the "sær" in "særskilt", in other words, "sær" in this case, is translated to "separate".

Also, the movie, you list was probably banned years ago, probably because of it's topic. Remember, Norway banned "Life of Brian" back in the 79, for heressy, so a movie dealing with a nymphomaniac probably didn't sit well with the same board back in 73.

Haven't heard of a movie getting banned in recent years though.

Beklager om det. :oops:

When I looked up 'sær' using "lexin.no," I ended up with "Ingen treff." When I used "tritrans" the only translation given for 'sær' was 'strange.' :?

Before yesterday I wasn't aware that a film had ever been banned in Norway. It looks like in the case of the movie "Life of Brian" the ban only last for a about a year. According to the IMDB site, the ban on "Life of Brian" was lifted in Norway in 1980.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079470/

Certification:

Canada:R (Manitoba/Nova Scotia/Ontario) | Norway:(Banned)(1979 - 1980) | Finland:K-16 (1988) | Finland:K-16 (cut) (1980)| Netherlands:MG6 (DVD rating) | Iceland:L | Spain:T |Portugal:M/12 | Singapore:(Banned) | Norway:18 (1980) |Sweden:15 | Australia:MA | France:U | Australia:M (TV rating) |Brazil:18 | Argentina:16 (re-rating) | Argentina:18 (original rating) | Canada:G (Quebec) | Ireland:(Banned) (1979-1987) |Ireland:15 (re-rating) | New Zealand:R16 | Norway:11 (re-rating) (2004) | UK:15 (video rating) (1988) | UK:AA (original rating) | USA:R

Here's an interesting quote I just found at the IMDB site:


This film was initially banned in Norway for blasphemy. It wasn't released there until 1980. Subsequently, it has been marketed in Sweden as "The film that is so funny that it was banned in Norway!"

It is also interesting to note that when "Life of Brian" was re-released in 2004, it was given a "Norway:11" rating. However in the U.S. the movie has a much stricter "R" (Restricted - Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult 21 or older.) rating and even in "liberal" Sweden, the movie has a "No one under 15 is admited" rating. :mrgreen:

Hehe, Sweden was a lot less liberal back when that film was originally released, and I suspect no one has bothered to change the rating since then :P

Not that anyone cares about those ratings, we watched films that had this 15-years-of-age-limit in school in högstadiet (class 7-9, age 13-16), before the last year of it :whistle: Once they had even rented the local cinema and had he whole school watch one :mrgreen:

Academy Awards

Postby Raufoss » 2009-02-22, 18:17

Tonight the winner of the Oscar for the Best Foreign Language Film will be announced during the 81st Academy Awards ceremony.

Here are the nominees:

Der Baader Meinhof Komplex (The Baader Meinhof Complex) Germany

Entre les murs (The Class) France

Okuribito (Departures) Japan

Revanche Austria

Vals Im Bashir (Waltz with Bashir) Israel

Has anyone seen any of these films and if so, do you have any comments? Unfortunately none of these five films can be rented through Netflix and for each film the DVD availability is "unknown."

Does anyone know what any of the nordisk film entries were for 2008? This is the second straight year that no nordisk filmer have been nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film award. :( The last nordisk film to be nominated was the dansk film "Efter brylluppet" in 2006 and the last norsk film to be nominated was "Elling" in 2001.

Here is the link I found to an article about the five nordisk film entries for last year's Oscars:

http://www.icenews.is/index.php/2008/01 ... or-oscars/

The Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur’s ‘Jar City’ will kick off the screenings, followed by Norwegian Petter Næss’ ‘Gone With the Woman’. The Finnish director Aleksi Salmenperä’s ‘A Man’s Job’ will follow along with Swedish Roy Andersson’s ‘You, the Living’ and Danish Peter Schønau Fog’s ‘The Art of Crying’.

Scandinavia has brought home a total of five Oscars in the history of the Academy Awards, while receiving 27 nominations.

In a mild upset the Japanese film Okuribito won the Oscar for the Best Foreign Language Film. The Israeli film Vals Im Bashir had been favored by "most experts" to win last night.

After doing a little more research I was able to answer my own question. I don't generally like to use Wikipedia as my "sole source" of information for any subject, but so far the only complete lists of Academy Award entries from Nordic countries that I have been able to find are those provided by Wikipedia:

List of Icelandic submissions for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ic ... guage_Film

List of Danish submissions for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Da ... guage_Film

List of Norwegian submissions for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_No ... guage_Film

List of Swedish submissions for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Sw ... guage_Film

I did several searches for a list of "Finnish submissions," but have so far been unsuccessful finding one. :(

:lol: Yeah, sær can be strange/boring/grumpy/special [special as in, unique in being weird].
But in compounds and other forms, its meaning is mostly close to unique.

særskilt = especially
særs = unusual
særoppgave = special/personal assignment

O’Horten: New Film by Bent Hamer

Postby Raufoss » 2009-07-20, 20:27

I found the following entry that was posted in the Sons of Norway blog about the Norwegian film "O’Horten:"

http://sonsofnorwayblog.blogspot.com/20 ... -bent.html

Wednesday, July 8, 2009
O’Horten: Here’s a … Who?; New Film by Bent Hamer

Summer heat getting to you? Take respite in a cool movie theater and explore Norwegian culture! In theaters now (at the Edina Four in Minneapolis; across the country here) is a contemporary Norwegian film by Bent Hamer, a Sandefjord native. Best known for Kitchen Stories (Salmer fra kjøkkenet) and the American independent film Factotum, Hamer once again meets with some critical acclaim on O’Horten, his fifth feature length film.

Has anyone seen this film yet and if so, do you recommend it?

I haven't been able to find any theaters yet in Southern California that are showing this film, but perhaps it will become available here soon.

I did notice a few days ago that the Norwegian horror movie "Fritt Vilt" (Cold Prey) is now finally available through Netflix.

I watched Okuribito/Departures two months ago and :goodone: It surpised me -unexpected-. (notice: I watch evil stuff at most: seinen anime, splatter movies, etc)

Greit nok.

Has anyone seen Død snø ? It could have been better but still above C grade, imo :yep:

Tusen takk for det! :y:

I'm not sure if Okuribito is out on DVD with English subtitles yet because it still isn't available through netflix. I just found out that of the best foreign film nominees, only Vals Im Bashir is currently available with English subtitles through netflix so it looks like I will have to continue to be patient.

densou wrote:Has anyone seen Død snø ? It could have been better but still above C grade, imo :yep:
I can watch the English dubbed version of Død snø on Pay-Per-View (PPV) right now for 5.99 USD through Time Warner Cable, but I think I'm going to hold out for the DVD with English subtitles.

Nå litt på norsk:

Jeg hadde aldri hørt en norsk film omtalt av amerikanske medier før 1. juli 2009, men dette morgenen National Public Radio (NPR) nevnte film "Død Snø" og Norsk Nazi Zombies.
