people need to vote more, this comedy is top 250 stuff fer crying out loud!!!!
16 August 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

A classic comedy director, Swedish Tage Danielsson directed, wrote, and even crammed in a small, but memorable role for himself, in this really lovable piece of old cinema. Filled with slapstick humor, great acting and completely absurd situations and characters (especially the always-brilliant Hasse Alfredsson(who also helped write the script) is memorable as a Skaanish fisherman who dreams of becoming a big star in Hollywood, unfortunately 97% of the time it's impossible to hear what he's saying).

One of the funniest comedies ever made, and the BEST Swedish movie ever made (Fuc king Åmål a.k.a. Show Me Love MY ASS!) Att Angöra En Brygga is nothing short of fantastic in my book. Also appearing are the old time-hotshots Lasse Ekborg, Monica Zetterlund and Gösta Ekman.

A definite must-see for fans of Swedish and foreign cinema! 10/10
