Review

This is a cute little family film which looks and feels like 2005. Young Petter moves from the city to the country and befriends a dog whose owner is mistreating him. The unexperienced child actors are sympathetic, and there a number of Norwegian up-and-comers in supporting roles, notably Ingar Helge Gimle and Thorbjørn Harr. The target audience will probably be more impressed by the dog Samson, however. Venner for livet works quite well within its set rules and scope.
