Trivia

When stars Gösta Ekman and Grynet Molvig first performed their sex scene, it didn't go very well. Director Tage Danielsson asked what the problem was. They said they were uncomfortable being naked on a movie set naked. Danielsson then suggested that the whole crew should take their clothes off when they did this scene - and so they did. Except for one crew member, who had a cold. See more »

Ever seen a man smoke a herring?
2 August 1999 | by (Stockholm,Sweden) – See all my reviews

Mannen som slutade röka (The man who stopped smoking).

This film is about the changes you go through when trying to get rid of an addiction. Ingenious Gösta Ekman, who plays Dante Alighieri, will make you laugh in ways you didn't think was possible. The film is packed with hilarious scenes. In one passage Dante is in such a bad shape his hand tries to take the initiative, and he has to fight his hand to prevent it from grabbing a package of cigarettes. The result is a totally wrecked kitchen. No matter what you think about smoking, this is 110% FUN for everyone who sees it. Unlike some other Tage Danielsson films, such as Picassos äventyr, you do not have to be Swedish to get it.

Definitely one of the ten best comedies ever!
