The Black Lapp (2003)

Svidd neger
2003 | Norway | Erik Smith Meyer | ★★★★

Despite its controversial Norwegian title (Svidd neger) Erik Smith Meyer's The Black Lapp is a strange and unpredictable black comedy, filled with outlandish turns of plot, winningly quirky characters, and wonderful comic detail.


"Anna lives with her father Karl someplace in the outskirts of northern Norway. Karl killed his ex-wife and threw her newborn child into the sea when he discovered that she obviously had been unfaithful. Now Karl is being haunted by her ghost and is developing a serious drinking problem. Anna is looking for the love of her life, but there aren't many bachelors around - until they discovers another small family on the other side of the mountain. They meet a semi-alcoholized widow of Karl's age, her son Peder, and her black adopted son, Ante, who arrived from the sea on a piece of wood." TMDb
