This dramady shouldn't work nearly as well as it does. The actors, as the odd couple Elling and Kjell Bjarne, are both outstanding, and it's a testiment to the performance that Elling - who's actually a pretty unlikeable guy if you think about it - is turned into such a loveable character. A truly sweet, and thankfully schmaltz-free, little wonder.

A nice little film, but nothing monumental. That's the Norwegian film industry in a nutshell, right there.

Not bad, but...the dark side of Elling never comes out, unlike in the book.

Elling is the perfect Norwegian comedy. It's funny moments hide a more profound theme of two mentally challenged people finding their way in the world after their leaving a mental institution.

It's a very entertaining and endearing film because we enjoy the characters immensely, played to perfection by Ellefsen and Nordin.
