THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE JOKER STORY, SELECTED BY THE CUSTOMERS OF 2012 - SO CHARMING, SO TRUE AND PERHAPS SO RARE THAT IT BECAME A COMMERCIAL FILM.
So it goes: We are a group of men from Elverum who like to go fishing. Every summer we drive more than sixty Norwegian miles to Lierne in the North of Trøndelag. My oldest brother Jon's birthday frequently collides with our yearly fising trip, and the last time he became sixty years old. He said he did not want any celebration. However, the rest of us wanted just that. So we went to see Hege, working in the local Joker store, asking her about the possibility of buying a cream cake. We know that they actually don't have those, but Hege has a mum who loves to bake. And that very same evening, the nicest surprise in the world came along (perhaps you have guessed it already - the sweetest of cream cake). So both the jubilant and the rest of us experienced that good old fashion service had not become old fashion or out-dated at all. Nice, or what? Storytelling from the real world at its best from director Ubbe Haaving and the production company Trøbbel Film. Produced by Miriam Pedersen Eeg, post-produced by Pia Nyhus and Hocus Focus. Edited by Thomas Løvig, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen. Sound design by Preben Grieg-Halvorsen.
