Dag


Notes so far.
My favourite (written) Norwegian word is Zoologisk.  For Zoo I think.
I also like “Broo” and “Syyster
I especially liked all the Norwegian singing and the songs.  So far

Some of the scenes are just eye meltingly beautiful in Dag.  The colours in them.  For example when Dag meets his mate Benedikt on a wooden pier-facing a lake.

Often times Dag and his mate’s shirts, are just a few (if that) shades lighter than the other.  Amazing.

Episode Three.
Some notes and dialogue on first watching.

Ooops.  I couldn’t possibly write about this (part of the) episode.  I’m sure it isn’t allowed.

Benedikt to Dag;
“So now she’s walking around with my keys attached to her like cow bells”..

Dag and Benedikt actually swapped roles.

And then. Eva and Dag have a talk.
Nope..
Dag:
“I’m leaving”
Having given Eva his mix CD.

Episode Four
Graphic text:
So stupid and pointless yet human to be jealous of the sunbeam..
I don’t wanna say.

I dunno.  Dunno whether I want to keep on with Dag.  Getting a bit tiresomely teachy-preachy.  Like it’s all just a vehicle for his stand-up routines.

Episode Five
Some notes.
OK some text wasn’t print-able.

Bla bla bla.  Blimey that baby got big quick.

Dag is harsh. Harsh.  Harsh.  And getting harsher.

Review
I’m not sure if I’m going to keep writing about Dag. Not because I don’t like it because I really do. And Dag feels really like a different art form.  To me.

Dag has always felt like it could be easy to over-write it somehow.  With too many words.  Funny, huh.  Because Dag is a deceptively slight but deeply artful creation.  That needs no more words.

***

Footnote.
OK I did write more about Dag..
