Comment: Next to some Soccer playing teen boys in red and dark blue shorts at the beginning and end, more notable is Martin Dahl Garfalk as main character Otto, shirtless in red, medium brown or orange, wet swim shorts. Also even undressing them (rear view only). Maybe none of these 60s shorts are really shiny.

I’m not sure about the correct color. I remember warmer colors on my TV, even in the woods, more like orange, but might result from his shirt. They are wet anyway.

Nice and awarded coming-of-age movie and like most Skandinavian movies set in or around the 60s. (I wonder why). Some few other funny scenes/scenes of interest (peeing at someone’s door mat, dropping down pants in front of a blind man) but the best is of course the lake scene at around 11 minutes. English title: Cross My Heart and Hope to Die. The German title is even more simple and I often forget it.

Rating 7. The DVD is currently very expensive here and maybe not worth for just this brief scene. 1992 novel “Gutten som ville være en av gutta” by Lars Saabye Christiansen.
