Jo Nesbø, known for rather gloomy, very adult substances like the detective stories around commissioner Harry Hole, may also be different. Since 2007, he has been inspiring very young readers with his stories about the crazy inventor Doctor Proktor. The first of four Proktor books to date with the wonderful title "Doktor Proktors Pupspulver" has now been filmed as a German-Norwegian co-production in Erfurt and Oslo. The bizarre story focuses on the two children Lise (Emily Glaister) and Bulle (Eilif Hellum Noraker), who sneak into the house of the allegedly crazy inventor Doctor Proktor (Kristoffer Joner) against every warning. They quickly realise that the shy neighbour is a very friendly man who has made some great inventions.
The children are particularly fascinated by his pup powder. You are sure: the powder can make a lot of money at school. Because farts that don't stink but let you fly are the best a child can wish for. But the evil Tharne (Atle Antonsen), who repeatedly steals Proctor's inventions and passes them off as his own, also has his eye on the fart powder. He wants to sell it to NASA for a lot of money for rocket propulsion. In order to get his annoying rival out of the way, he has Proktor and Bulle thrown into prison without further ado. Can Lise get these two out of this dicey situation? And what has a giant snake living in a sewer got to do with the whole thing?
"Doctor Proktor's Pupspulver" is a shrill-coloured, wacky children's film, which scores with quite anarchic, yet absolutely target-group-oriented humour and charming characters. Not only unusual camera perspectives, but also hairstyles, costumes and equipment ensure that this book adaptation clearly stands out from other children's films. However, this is also something very special, with which a wider audience could well have problems. Besides the appearance of the giant snake is extremely fearsome for completely small spectators, which provided with the kindergarten groups, which were present with the press demonstration, for the one or other anxious Wimmern.
The Pupswitzchen already in the title threatened against it function with the small ones straight at the beginning correctly well and provide for resounding laughter. However, in the end they get a bit overused, so that the laughs decrease and it's hard for the movie to bind the children's attention to the nice story until the end. But even if adult companions can't make much friends with most of the gags and there are also some small pitfalls for the target audience, "Doktor Proktors Pupspulver" has become a pleasantly unadapted, original and pleasantly charming children's film, the sequel to which is already being shot. A reunion with the unusual inventor and his friends is therefore safe. This first visit to Doctor Proktor is definitely worth seeing for spectators between 5 and 10 years of age who like it a bit weirder and more colourful.
