The new Oslo film
- NY Times promotion

Former Norwegian top model with husband are modelling campaign for the "Oslo, August 31st"
Film in Norway, is a matter of state funding, so what is this film about? Is this some post Utøya project?

Could it be on the Stoltenberg propaganda budget?

The film was made before 22 July, so it has nothing to do with Utøya. It may, however, have an extra dimension about it after 22 July, as it takes place in Oslo, and talks about a young man who in his life finds no resonance around him.
