Great movie!
5 May 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I really love this movie, really I do. Tage Danielsson is such a ... genius! Släpp fångarne loss, det är vår is maybe the most funny and realistic Swedish movie ever. At least in my opinion :D I think that almost every sketch *the gang* has ever made is genius! They are like a Swedish Monty Python! (*Tage Danielsson, Frida Nyman, Hans Alfredsson, Gösta Ekman, so on, so on*)... This movie is a classic - it's got romance, excitement, prison, action, softness, music, genius! This is a movie that makes me truly proud of Sweden (And there isn't so many things that does that to me :P)! It's filmed, not with a bunch of computer-animated special effects, but with real special effects! For instance, Frida is a lot less tall than Frida's friend. Then they have made it so that ALL Frida's stuff is a lot smaller then Frida's friends. For example, her guitar is like three sizes smaller that his. It's very comical, and gives the movie that special little touch. I really think you should see it!
