Storyline

The hound for young tennis talents reached its peak in the beginning of the 1970's, when superstar Einar Berg threw in the towel. Thousands of young lads were tricked to break off their education for an uncertain, decadent and doubtful future on the tennis courts. For Wilander and Edberg it went relatively easily, while it became a little different for the striplings Alex, Sigge and Theo. Written by Fredrik Klasson <fredrik.klasson@boras.mail.telia.com>

Truly cult
31 August 1999 | by (Somewhere over the rainbow) – See all my reviews

this is one of swedish television's greatest comedies of its time. The cast is superb and the story is just so awkward it cracks you up. But you probably must be swedish to understand it all. And the budget probably wasnt higher than a 1000 dollars.
