god story, mix of animation and film
22 January 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This film is a good example of the early works of AB Svenska Ord and their collaboration with the animator Per Åhlin. Still, the story is good and has invariant qualities in terms of the human condition. As usual Hans Alfredsson is playing and extraordinary Gubbe. Already as a young man, he could portray a man of any age in a credible way. Tage Danielson's direction is also as always interesting. His interest in narrative comes through very well My favourite scene is probably when the young man is out on his first date and needs to let go of some wind. He runs up the hill to kick a bucket, but misses the target and lets go of his rectal serenade, and the girlfriend is, of course deeply offended. Love it!
