Synopsis

If you thought you knew it all about the cold war, you were very wrong. With its openly retro aesthetics, a stepped-up taste for old school special effects and a fondness for eighties action movies (with James Bond in the lead), Norwegian Ninja turns history around and tells everything you wanted to know but weren't told about this period. We're in 1983, when a group of ninja spies discover that a coup is being plotted in times of peace. Explosions, gadgets and fighting between blond Nordics with horn-rimmed glasses liven up this amusing film that will delight genre lovers.
