KK,

Perhaps, if Nyebro Yaw had provided all that missing information, the trolls would have remarked: "it was long as usual". As you could see, the usual vulgar types in our midst are spewing their vile bile already.

Well, I love the movie too and will like to watch it again. I watched it twice over two decades ago on TV when I was living in Norway. So, it's not a new film. Likely on the Internet. I just checked. It was made in 1985.

I always remember with amusement the scenes with the senior citizen who was on the censorship board, with the wife eagerly waiting for them to re-enact scenes from banned films. Can we say that it brings to the fore the hypocrisy of old people as censors of morality?
