Lightweight fun....
27 June 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Here is one of those suave, elegant romantic comedies that you hardly see nowadays in Sweden. It is not groundbreaking, genre shifting film but it has a lot of charm and wit.

The story is an simple one about Jan Froman(played by Jarl Kulle) who gets hired as an assistant janitor at bank office. He quickly shows an interest in one of his co workers Margareta Günther(played by Christina Schollin).

But she is upperclass, rich and also engaged, she however flattered by Fromans interest and his charm. Will Froman succeed?

This is basically the whole plot in a nutshell, but there is an incredible chemistry between Jarl Kulle and Christina Schollin. Kulle mainly famous for his work with Bergman(notably Sommarnattens leende/Smiles of a Summer Night 1955) shows again his incredible charm and talent for witty dialogue.

Christina Schollin does great job keeping up with him and together they form the same kind of partnership that Cary Grant/Katharine Hepburn had in Bringing Up Baby (1938).

In the supporting cast there also other veteran Swedish actors such as Edvin Adolphson, Sigge Fürst. They were versatile, talented cators who would mainly play comedies and their performances here are very good.

Too bad the storyline didn't get more work, because sometimes the film feels like it is lacking something, exactly what is hard to say, but it would have needed something more then just boy meets girl intrigue.

However, future viewers, interested in an suave, elegant romantic comedy from Sweden, should check this one out. Mainly for the great performances.
