Storyline

It's the 1950s and Giuseppe gets a letter from his friend Franco who is working in Sweden. He writes that Sweden is a wonderful country with high salaries, free health care and most important, the girls are beautiful. In short, it is a paradise and Giuseppe travels to Sweden to work. But, as he soon finds out, Franco was not completely frank with him. The taxes are high, the coffee is like dish-water, no wine at the restaurant and worst of all - no billiards!

Still Real
22 January 2002 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie is great, it shows finally what really Sweden is. Although the movie was set in the 50ties (it ends in modern times though) it is incredible to still notice the same behaviour and lifestyle of the today's swedes. I reccomend it to the ones that still believe Sweden is a beautiful and exotic country, that all girls are blonde and easy, that life is good. The nature pretty... and so on.
