Viggo is a virtual reality nerd. His favourite game is “Gooseboy” because it lets him feel as free as a goose flying north. In reality, Viggo is more of a down-to-earth type; he can’t swim, and he can’t wall climb – as his new neighbour Vigga finds out to her chagrin. But then Viggo discovers a gander who has fallen onto the balcony; he can talk, but he can’t fly anymore. The two spontaneously take off together to head north, where the gander hopes to catch up to his flock … With a brilliant cast even in smaller roles, including stars Ulrich Thomsen and Nicolas Bro, “Gooseboy” transcends the majority of cinematic video game simulations with verve and vibrant songs. It is a rousing embodiment of the old chestnut “children need fresh air to grow”.
