Fifty Shades of Grey slaughtered

Norwegian papers slate the new film among changes in Norwegians’ sex lives.



“An advanced shitty film,” writes VG journalist Jon Selås, “50 nuances (shades) of rubbish,” Norwegian author Erlend Loe declares in his review for Aftenposten-run site osloby.no.

Both he and tabloid Dagbladet are merciless and non-sadomasochistic with their views of E.L. James’ novel.

“The book was bad, the film was worse,” the summary of his review in Aftenposten reads. “The book is simply kiosk literature for the chattering classes”, writes Andreas Wiese in his Dagbladet-published review, “[with] about as much as a plot as an average intercourse.”

Over 100 million copies of the trilogy have been sold, with the work having been translated into more than 51 languages worldwide since release.

Professor of Psychology at Bergen University College Frode Thuen tells The Foreigner that “these types of books have been read by a very large number of women.”

“The last few years have also seen an enormous increase in the availability of BDSM equipment in sex shops. Both this and these books’ market reach have quite likely inspired people to experiment,” he explains.

Fifty Shades of Grey (125 minutes, rated 15 in Norway), based on the book, is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti.

It stars Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) and Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey), Jennifer Ehle (Carla), and Eloise Mumford (Kate).

The film premieres nationally on Friday.
