Great!
16 September 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best/funniest movies ever made in Sweden or anywhere for that matter. Best line is: "Leif, Leif, Leif what have you done?" See it, you'll love it! Claes Eriksson is fantastic as Max and his brother, Anders Ericsson, is brilliant as the Manager of the weapon factory, Rotums canons and gunpowder. With the slogan: You can't compete with us, smallest try is stopped by us, we are smarter than you can be, oh how smart we are! The Bofors (swedish weapon manufacturer) scandal is ridiculed! All of the music and lyrics in the movie is great, and written by Claes Ericsson and performed by Galenskaprna and Aftershave. Leif "EN KANON FILM!"
