Song of Norway

Film, Drama

Time Out says

A saccharine fantasy biopic of Grieg, with 45 musical numbers, 25 songs, international uvulas, and production line fjords. Grieg lived a life of exemplary dullness, and Stone has tried to ginger it up with white-knuckle cliff-hangers like whether the composer will be able to create an indigenous national music for Norway or not. Edvard, hold the phone. Edward G Robinson plays a piano salesman, Harry Secombe does not play Neddy Seagoon, Little Eyolf fails to show. Life magazine raved: 'Godawful'. The New Yorker wondered whether it had been made by trolls. The Medved Brothers dubbed Florence Henderson, who plays Grieg's wife, 'the female Peter Frampton for the Geritol generation'.
