Shameless con-artistry galore in clever little flick...
Inventive, clever and constantly entertaining flick of two oddly paired con artists in 80's Stockholm and their escalating swindle schemes. No serious filmmaking here, just a lot of colourful characterizations and nifty scams... favourite: The Rod Stewart concert!! FUN: Check out Stellan Skarsgård (of such later Hollywood fame such as Good Will Hunting, Deep blue sea, Ronin etc.) in his hippie-ish bum appearance!
