King Curling (Kong Curling)

 

Year: 2011
Country: NORWAY
Run Time: 75 minutes

Sweep! You know what sport doesn't get enough credit? Curling. That roaring stone-throwing, broom brushing, kneel-sliding sport of gods comes to the States once every four years in the parade that is the Winter Olympics. Sweep! Now it comes hardcore in this laugh-out-loud comedy that kneels to the memories of "Kingpin" and "Slapshot." KING CURLING stars the hilarious Atle Antonsen as Truls Paulsen, the leader of Team Paulsen and the man who can land his stone within a millimeter of where it needs to score. His talents are out of this world and his acumen with throwing is unmatched. Also, his OCD has driven him crazy. Like, make-a-giant-smiley-face-out-of-huge-ice-cubes-for-space-aliens crazy. Sweep! After ten years in a hospital and away from curling, Truls is now allowed back into society with his dog-loving wife as his guardian. But when his mentor and father figure Gordon needs an expensive lung transplant, Truls must get the team back together and win the national championship and the prize money that comes with it. Non-stop laughs, non-stop curling action, and non-stop excitement, KING CURLING calls its shot and scores a winner. Sweep! Sweep! (In Norwegian with subtitles) – T.W.
