That describes the members of the Berlevag Manschoirï¿½age 29 to 96ï¿½who sing outdoors even in the coldest weather. Itï¿½s also the name of a Norwegian documentary that crossed the Atlantic to warm reviews for the way director Knut Erik Jensen portrays these men who live in a fishing village near the Arctic Circle. The subtitled film includes songs about ï¿½fishing and filleting, frivolity and faith,ï¿½ as well as a ï¿½healthy dose of cod philosophy.ï¿½ To find out where itï¿½s playing, go to www.firstrunfeatures.com.
