The total movie, humor, drama, absurd but logical intrigue.
23 May 1999 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie is probably the best Swedish movie ever. It has humor, drama, excellent actors, and an absurd intrigue, which never the less is totally logical in every detail. However, if you are not a Swede in the age above 35, It is probably completely incomprehensible for you. Compare it to an insider joke that only could be understood by a certain group of somehow related people. The movie is making fun of mannerisms and archetypes that has already disappeared from a Swedish society which was changing rapidly even when the movie was made, and which is totally different today.
