After having lived in Sweden for half a year, I truly appreciated this look into modern Swedish living. Schlager is to the Swedish what the ocean is to lemmings. They are all drawn to it instinctively.
A full-time nurse with three kids and an unemployed husband gets her lucky break and breaks through as a Swedish superstar.
A lot of laughs and frustration. Good acting, nice photography and above all a compelling story. 9/10.
