Hilarious
4 May 2002 | by UACWSee all my reviews

They say, they say... They say Swedish film is not what it used to be. And moviegoers may have that in mind when they search for new talent. But this movie is hilarious - and heart-warming too. The breakfast scene is a classic. Josefin is scrumptious. Kjellman is the perfect anti-hero. But this has a message too - namely that nothing is given, and that if two people are right for each other, no history and no circumstance will categorically keep them apart. This may not be Swedish film at its best, but it's good - as good today as it gets.
