Second best of 4
3 April 2000 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Once again Stig-Helmer and his friend Ole takes a trip together. However, this time its not completely intentional.

They both find themselves celebrating mid-summer with the upper class boating people. Of course Stig-Helmer finds love again and so does Ole.

As usual the movie contains much criticism against rich people but also against all the wannabe sailors out in Stockholms archipelago.

The movie also show beautiful views of the archipelago summer which is hard to resist.

Maybe it isn´t the best movie ever done but it´s fun for the moment!
