Press coverage

Kjetil Wold, Av måneskinn gror ingenting (literally: Of moonshine nothing grows), Stavanger Aftenblad, 04.09.2004:

"Nina Ellen Ødegård is very good in the role of Josie. She balances the rough and the vulnerable, the cynical and the naïve – and seems to be a person who despite isolation and broken dreams never loses faith in the cleansing, resurrecting powers of love. (...) Her face is modelled in changing emotions – and she has an organic, vulnerable acting style which really moves. I understand perfectly well why director Anne-Karen Hytten chose Nina Ellen Ødegård for this fundament of a role."
