His father is crazy, his mother is a lesbian, and his brother is prone to depression. Georg Broch-Hansen really does not find his family easy to handle. But things get worse: his pop starlet girlfriend dumps him and, anything but willingly, Georg moves in with his father. Meanwhile, his brother plans to stage an »art performance« that has him taking a dump on the flags of all member countries of the UN in front of a webcam, a move supposed to express his disgust for the world. In contrast to the pitch-black humor this six-part Norwegian TV series is steeped in, NORWEGIAN COZY has light, washed-out images that are reminiscent of overexposed Jürgen Teller photographs. Author and director Thomas Seeberg Torjussen names SIX FEET UNDER as a model for his series, but NORWEGIAN COZY is anything but a knock-off of American formats: a dissection of good old FAMILY VALUES as relentlessly comic as this one is nowhere to be found on US television.
