Juha Lindström grows up in the 1970s in a peaceful suburb to Stockholm called Sävbyholm. Sävbyholm seems peaceful enough on the surface but underneath a lot of problems exist. The grown-up Juha is a famous comedian who cannot forget his childhood. He remembers being a kid and trying to please the cool kids by being funny. He didn't always succeed. Now he is taping letters to his childhood friend Thomas about how bad he feels and how much his childhood has affected him. We follow Juha and the other kids in 6th grade in flashbacks.

Painful to watch
27 April 2002 | by (Gothenburg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a TV-series based on the book with the same name. Both are excellent. The series tells us about the horrors of growing up in a small society where people are judged unfairly a lot of times. Those who don't fit in are doomed forever. It also shows how your experiences from childhood can affect you even in your adult life. Björn Kellman is a great actor and so is Görel Crona, but you've got to hand it to the kids who do an excellent job. Their portrayal of 12 year olds are very accurate and I recognised a lot from my own childhood, unfortunately. Lucky for me I was not the worst bullied one.
