Classic road-move, scandinavian style
5 July 1999 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

It's all there: Two classic anti-hero buddies, a headlong chase through beautiful swedish scenery, guns, violence, sex, and a Butch Cassidy / sundance Kid - style finale.

Add a touch of surrealism and some distinctly danish humour, and you've got this excellent road-movie.
