Norwegian public schools enforce the absence of gender roles and Norwegian women have achieved great success in business, politics and with overall earning.
Economic and cultural equality, and the egalitarian philosophy prevalent among Norwegians, strips the dating environment to its most basic.
Andreas meets Hugo, who has found a crack in a wall in his cellar. When I saw this film I was striken with the brilliant snapshot of this society. I too found a great job with a great pay, and I live with my norwegian boyfriend in a nice apartment downtown.
But, so far everyone I have met have left me with that tasteless, empty feeling I had never had before - this is what this movie is about.
Balanced against the modern trend of individualistic pursuits, Norwegian singles enter the dating world armed with few precepts of gender expectations and blessed with a freedom from cultural baggage.
Norwegian women have made strides toward gender equality since the 1960s.
Jante Law consists of cultural premises that have influence in many facets of Norwegian life.
The law, which has tenets of humility, fosters the goal of equal partnerships in dating.
Eric Erickson has written professionally since 2004.
The dating culture in Norway reflects, in many ways, the culture of other developed European countries and the United States.
However, Norwegian culture is also reflective of its own small, homogeneous population.
As with other Scandinavian countries, Norwegian men and women have developed dating practices that are outwardly progressive while remaining humble in spirit.
With a recent influx of asylum seeking immigrants that has altered the homogeneity somewhat, Norwegian men and women are open to outsiders in the dating world, as long as they are not subject to archaic traditions and values.
But before long, Andreas notices that something is wrong. I saw this movie yesterday and can't stop thinking about it.
