Their best film
12 December 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

'Leif' is clearly Galenskaparna & After Shave's best feature film, followed by 'Macken'. Leif is one of my favourite Swedish comedies of all time. It's Claes Eriksson's debut as a feature film director, as well as it's the group's first film, so there's a bit of 'pioneer feeling' to it. I really recommend it, it's a funny film.
