Conclusion: Better than it looks, Norway's Thale proves to be surprisingly engaging in its brief runtime. It's a film that will fall in between audiences, not ballsy and graphic enough for horror fans, but too weird for those with a taste for "European cinema." In its own strange way, though, the movie manages to be better than both of those classes and slightly better than it has any reason to be.

Leo works for the No Shit Cleaning Service, a clean-up firm of the kind that disposes of dead bodies. Today he�s got his old pal Elvis along to help out (despite being entirely ill-suited to the job) and the task at hand is an elderly chap who expired some weeks back and has been taken advantage of by the local wildlife.
Excerpt: Jeg er glad for at det kommer flere filmer tuftet på norsk folklore og eventyrtradisjon. Thale er et vellykket forsøk på å bringe huldra inn i filmens verden. Det ligger kanskje et uforløst potensial i historien som med fordel kunne vært utforsket, men dette er likevel en stilig og spennende film med interessante talenter både foran og bak kamera.
