Elling is a neurotic, shy would-be writer who still lives with his mother--that is at least until she dies. Poor Elling is cast of the house by the health department and sent to state institution. While Elling has no experience with the outside world--his roommate Kjell-Bjarne is a sex-obessed hulk mass of a man raring to get out. Initially, these two wildly different guys get along famously. Only when they move into public housing together do cracks develop in their relationship. Elling reguses to leave the apartment or answer the phone, and tries to restric Kjell-Bjarne's movement as well. When the brawny lothario shacks up with the girl next door, Elling goes ballistic with jealousy

Crazy in love : (locos de amor) = Mozart & the whale( Visual )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald elsker fugler og er et absolutt geni når det gjelder tall. Han er leder av en støttegruppe for autister ved det lokale senteret. Han er mildere rammet enn de andre i gruppen, men sykdommen hindrer ham likevel fra å holde på en fast jobb. En dag får gruppen et nytt medlem, den strålende vakre Isabelle Sorenson. Donald faller pladask for henne, og hun vet det. Hun er temmelig bevisst på sin egen tiltrekningskraft ovenfor menn og vet å benytte seg av det. Isabelle vet også at det er umulig for henne å oppføre seg som en normal person, derfor gjør hun akkurat det motsatte, hun oppfører seg konfronterende og aggressivt. Isabelle snakker åpent om livet sitt, om måten hun har skaffet seg sex på med fremmede, og også om sin kjærlighet til kunst og musikk. Isabelles maling og komponering og Donalds besettelse/mani med tall er ikke noe de behøver jobbe hardt med, det bare kommer automatisk. Filmen fikk terningkast 2-5

Bare Bea( Visual )

Bea er 16 år. Hun går i første gym, skriver i skoleavisen og er den siste i venninnegjengen som ikke har hatt sex. Hun er forelsket i skolens kjekkeste, smarteste og kuleste, tredjeklassingen Daniel. Men så, underet over alle undere, viser det seg at interessen er gjensidig. Alle muligheter åpner seg for det sosiale liv og nye erfaringer. Venninnegjengen ser bare ett problem: nemlig det faktum at når man for første gang skal ligge med noen, så må man aldri gjøre det med noen man er forelsket i. Første gang blir nemlig alltid mislykket. Et problem for Bea, og det blir venninnen Mia som finner løsningen: 19 åringen Anders. Etter det klumsete, men også vellykkede møtet, har han derfor all grunn til å tro at Bea er oppriktig interessert i ham. Filmen terningkast 5
