Surprisingly gripping ...
18 May 2004 | by rjones-5See all my reviews

Okay, the premise that the gorgeous Lola's grown up pet bear keeps transforming himself into a teenage lad (fully dressed) & then back again is off-the-wall daft. But IMHO, Rebecka Liljeberg as Lola keeps it together, with a fantastic performance (sultry teenager, coping bravely with the challenges of teenagerhood – plus the ultimate in dysfunctional (step)folks – and to top it, being besotted with a blinkin' bear). Early on I thought there might perhaps be some deep significance/ profound message going to emerge ... but when this possibility disappeared and (roughly 2/3 of the way through) and the movie crossed the line into total gobsmacking incredulity territory - I stayed captivated ... watching Ms Liljeberg. This lass has the talents and looks deserving of the Big Time (would have been great in the Scarlatt J 'Lost in Translation' role). Gosh, do all gals with exotic Scandinavian names have brilliant acting-talents & looks?
