Full dekning (2022)
A clever premise nicked from the 2016 Italian movie Perfetti sconosciuti by Paolo Genovese in which seven 40-something friends – three couples and a single guy – challenge each other to read every text they receive out loud and put every phone call on speakerphone during their couples dinner. Will they be able to stand by their claim that they have nothing to hide? This Norwegian version has a talented, appealing cast and well-worded dialogue by writer Lars Gudmestad, a combination which makes it a thoroughly enjoyable and at times very funny albeit always rather lightweight dissection of modern life. Incidentally, Genovese's film became the most remade film in cinema history already a couple of years before Full dekning was released, having been remade in more than 20 countries.
