OUTTAKES

Have You Spotted A Fiord Lately?

January 05, 1986|Betty Lukas

In his scathing review of "Revolution" ("England's answer to 'Heaven's Gate' "), the New York Times' Vincent Canby observed that "from the spectacular nature of the terrain seen in the battle . . . it could have been a Norwegian revolution."

Canby has a sharp eye for little old rocks 'n' rills.

Axel Helgeland, director of Norsk Film, the government-subsidized film production agency, told Outtakes that location scouts for "Revolution" found the unspoiled, un-telephone-poled and un-TV-antennaed countryside near the fiord village of Geiranger perfect for the battle scenes between the Red Coats and the rag-tag rebels.

With Norwegian money (Viking, a Norwegian company) in the film, why not shoot there? What's a fiord or two between friends?
