John Patrick Stenman,
Anneli is soon to be 17 years old. She lives alone with her mother and can barely remember her father who left the family 10 years ago. One day she receive a letter from her father, who is a helicopter pilot up north. Anneli decides to visit him, but on her way up, she meets Johnny and falls in love. Written by
Big-city girl goes from flashy(but hollow) Stockholm to northern Sweden to meet her father for the first time in a decade. Once there, things do not work out quite as she expected, but she meets some honest country folk who teach her a thing or two about life.
A predictable, intolerably bland, and simplistic yarn.
However, there is a time-capsule aspect to it that is somewhat interesting. There is so much bad eighties hair and music on display that at least hardcore eighties aficionados will have something to keep them entertained.
This movie makes an interesting double-feature with Jägarna. In Jägarna, the country-bumpkins of the north have more in common with the ignorant inbreds of Deliverance, while in this film they are honest, hard-working, and nice. It makes for an interesting juxtaposition of two different paradigms of the same people.
