A quick update to this thread. (btw: I have no affiliation with the people that made this movie, and I live in the US, so I haven't been able to see it myself, yet).
Seems to get some decent reviews (I saw at least a couple 4 stars out of 6.)
Apparently, some US film companies have approached the team, and some limited release or straight to dvd publication in the US is possible. There are even insinuations in some articles, that it may be re-done as a US movie down the line. (It's happened to some Norwegian films in the past, like "Insomnia" which originally took place in North of Norway, but in the US version, I believe they put it in Alaska).
