Forget Bergman, this is Swedish film at its finest.
4 July 2013 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

'Yrrol' may not have had an international target audience and limited release abroad, but it will always remain one of the native-made Swedish films closest to me. From the very first moment to the crazy credits it's a genuine giggle marathon. Through various sketches with innocent satire and playing a lot with stereotypes, the Lorry-gang (movie title obviously made by flipping their name) smoothly tells their message of what we people desire most: a feeling of being together.

Should you come across a texted version, it will be well-invested two hours of Swedish cinema humor at its peak. 10/10
