The film,  titled 'Kraftidioten' in Norwegian, will be shown at the Berlin International festival on February 6th, two weeks before its premiere in Norway. 
 
"It's really great that a comedy is included in the group of the most promising films," Moland told NRK, although he downplayed his chances of winning. 
 
The film tells the story of a snowplough driver in Valdres, played by Stellan Skarsgård, who gets in trouble with the Albanian mafia.
