Harry works at an mental asylum and gets sacked while his wife plans to move to Tanzania
24 July 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a hidden gem of a movie from Swedens probably biggest international star Stellan Skarsgård. He plays Harry a man with a wife, 7 kids and a mistress. If I were to label this movie I am not sure what to put it under, sure it has its funny sides and its dramatic sides. Around Harry there is a brilliant cast of weird characters, his wife a modern mother Theresa who has turned their home into a refugee camp, Sonja his mistress and her mercenary husband, Harry's brother the owner of a porn-shop who is allergic to naked bodies and many others. The movie tells the story of Harry and somewhat Sonja who both aren't happy in their relationships. Both Harry and Sonja gets fired from their low income-no education jobs and basically try to regain happiness.

The acting is great and the script is full of weird quirks and humor.
