An unintentional comedy
14 November 2005 | by Charlie_BarbarossaSee all my reviews

Being a student at Uppsala University myself, I and a few classmates went to see this movie. And we sure did laugh. Partly for recognizing most of the settings in Uppsala, but also because of the ridiculous depiction of the student life.

The students in the film spend time in a group of six, no more. They study in ways we couldn't recognize. They hang out at places where we real students do not hang out. They seem to have nothing in their heads except studying (so not true for real students, anyone can tell that). And none of their conversations sound real in any way. There are a lot of scenes in the movie that are just embarrassing to watch because of the poor script. Others are so ridiculous that they made us laugh even harder, which I believe is not the intention of the movie.

Even if I wasn't an Uppsala student, I wouldn't find the murder story nor the detective work the least bit enjoyable. It doesn't even work as a police movie.

Just a few script changes and it would be an all-out comedy. So thanks for a round of laughs, but it doesn't cover the fact that this is probably the worst movie I've seen so far this year. But I didn't expect better. Uppsala deserves a better movie taking place here, looks like I'm gonna have to do it myself.
