A concentrate of spring feelings
18 March 2000 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film contains the essence of spring feelings: love, humour, nice weather and all that stuff. Lena Söderblom is at her best, and so is Gunnar Björnstrand, who does his romantic character quite well. Jarl Kulle is outstanding as the neurotic opera singer, as is Hjördis Petterson as his mother. Well worth seeing.
