Swedish star shines in extremely pleasant comedy...
Extremely pleasant comedy set in Stockholm surrounding Håna' a 40-something man and his bumpy struggle to free himself from his dominant mother (Krook). Gösta Ekman is by many Swedes considered the greatest comic actor to ever come out of the country, and as co-writer, star and director, it's truly dubbed his' film, (and shine he does here, brighter than ever!) but the script -albeit quite thin, cleverly avoids this from becoming a complete one-man charade. Brimming with hilarious set-pieces and situations, the main core is still its warmth and care for the lively characters. An amusing soundtrack does its bit and the revelation of the film's curious title is quite memorable, too. 6 out of 10 from me.
