It starts with a bang (literally) and then lulls for a moment... the tension begins to mount as secret after secret is expertly revealed by our stalwart protagonist, Petter. Just when it seems to all be coming clear, everything is undermined yet again and then revealed in a new light. I am very glad that I bought this historical thriller (set in the 1980's) instead of renting it as I am cretain to show it to friends. Like most Norwegian cinema, 'Pionér' delivers a thoughtful and enticing narrative.
