10-year-old Oskar can’t wait to get out of the norther Norwegian village where he lives. He wants to go to America. Instead it is his mother who one day says she’s going to America, but she’s really going to a recovery center for her alcohol abuse. Oskar moves in with his grumpy grandpa instead, in an even smaller village. In the new place he meets Levis and his white pony, but when the new friends decides to pop some popcorn, Levi’s house is burned to the ground. Now there’s only one option left – they’re going to America. Hynek Pallas rates the film 4 out of 5 in DN and writes: “it’s a liberating feeling seeing something that addresses the reality of all to many children – without forgetting the importance of the fairy tale”.
