Norwegian shows and movies on Netflix!

Hei alle mine norske lære venner!

I found another show on Netflix that has a decent amount of Norwegian speaking in it.

It is called ‘Lilyhammer’ and it’s pretty funny. They kind of go back and forth between English and Norwegian but it’s at least good for listening.

Also if you haven’t watched 'Occupied’ yet, you should! It is on Netflix as well! It’s mostly in Norwegian and it’s a really great show.

Also, the movie 'King of Devil’s Island’ is a really good movie and according to my brother, 'Troll Hunters’ is really good!!

The Troll Wall (Norwegian: Trollveggen) is part of the mountain massif Trolltindene (Troll Peaks) in the Romsdalen valley, near Åndalsnes and Molde, on the Norwegian west coast. Trollveggen is part of the Reinheimen National Park in the municipality of Rauma in Møre og Romsdal county. The Troll Wall is the tallest vertical rock face in Europe, about 1,100 metres (3,600 ft) from its base to the summit of its highest point. At its steepest, the summit ridge overhangs the base of the wall by nearly 50 metres (160 ft). The Rauma River and the European Route E136 runs just to the east of the wall.[1]

The rock is gneiss, formed into a broken rock wall of huge corners, concave roofs, and crack systems, topped with a series of spires and pinnacles on the summit rim. The rock is generally loose, and rockfall is the norm on this north-facing big wall. There was a series of large rockfalls on the wall in September 1998, radically changing the character of several climbing routes.[2]

The Troll Wall has been a prestigious goal for climbers and base jumpers alike. Carl Boenish, the “father” of base jumping, was killed on the Troll Wall in 1984 shortly after setting the world record for the highest base jump in history. Base jumping from Troll Wall has been illegal since 1986.

SPOONS: THE ULTIMATE WEAPON

THE QUEEN IS UNABLE TO HAVE CHILDREN, SO SHE’S REALLY FUCKING SAD. ONE DAY, THOUGH, A BEGGAR WOMAN SELLS HER SOME MAGIC FLOWERS THAT WILL HELP HER HAVE KIDS. ONE OF THEM IS GOLD AND THE OTHER IS BLACK, AND THE WOMAN TELLS HER TO EAT THE GOLD ONE BUT NOT THE BLACK ONE. WHY DID SHE GIVE HER THE BLACK ONE AS WELL? WHO FUCKING KNOWS.

THE QUEEN IS REALLY FUCKING HUNGRY, SO SHE EATS BOTH FLOWERS. SHE’S PRETTY FUCKING STUPID. 

NINE MONTHS LATER, SHE GIVES BIRTH TO TWINS. ONE OF THEM IS GOLDEN AND PERFECT, AND THE OTHER ONE LOOKS LIKE A TINY LITTLE MOTHERFUCKING TROLL RIDING A GOAT AND CARRYING A WOODEN SPOON. THAT’S WHAT YOU GET FOR EATING TOO MANY FLOWERS, KIDS. FUCKED UP BABIES BORN WITH THEIR OWN SPOONS AND THEIR OWN GOATS.

SEVEN YEARS LATER, A BUNCH OF TROLLS SHOW UP TO MURDER THE SHIT OUT OF EVERYONE. THE UGLY DAUGHTER LOCKS HER FAMILY IN THE KITCHEN AND BEATS THE SHIT OUT OF ALL OF THE TROLLS WITH HER MOTHERFUCKING SPOON. SHE’S REALLY FUCKING GOOD WITH THAT SPOON.

UNFORTUNATELY, HER SISTER STICKS HER HEAD OUT OF THE WINDOW TO WATCH. THE TROLLS TEAR IT OFF AND REPLACE IT WITH A COW’S HEAD. TROLLS HAVE REALLY FUCKED UP SENSES OF HUMOUR. ALSO THEY’RE MASSIVE FUCKING DICKTRUMPETS.

THE UGLY SISTER SETS OFF ON A FUCKING MASSIVE RESCUE MISSION TO THE LAND OF THE TROLLS, ACCOMPANIED BY HER COW-HEADED SISTER. SHE BEATS THE SHIT OUT OF THE KING OF THE TROLLS USING ONLY HER WOODEN SPOON, RECLAIMS HER SISTER’S HEAD, AND FUCKS OFF INTO THE SUNSET ON HER GOAT.

Have you ever read the (originally Norwegian) folk story “Three Billy Goats Gruff”?  It created the word Troll as a mythical being who lived under a bridge.  I always imagine it is a bridge like this one near Rispond in Sutherland.   Of course a Troll is something else entirely to the social media generation!
