Storyline

John-John is young and black, growing up with his mother and stepfather in a boring suburb south of Stockholm. On one of the last days of the summer vacation, they rescue 10-year old Patricia from drowning at a public bath in Vinterviken in Lake Mälaren. Her father shows his gratitude by taking them home to the wealthy neighborhood, Bromma, where he and his family lives. John-John meets his daughter Elisabeth, and instantly fall in love with her. But it's a long way to go before he wins her love and her father's consent. Written by Mattias Thuresson

A cute and nostalgic movie!
26 January 2005 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

This movie is pretty good. For us who where in our teens when the movie came out its quite nostalgic.

Its about young love between "John-John" and "Elisabeth". Elisabeth is a typical Swedish girl and John-John has a different nationality. They both come from different segments of the city. "John" is on the poor side of the lake, Elisabeth on the rich side.

Its a quite romantic movie and cute in some ways. It will not be forgotten by us who were in our teens when it came out thats for sure. I don't think that many people other than swedes have seen this movie. I'm not sure if people from other countries would like it. You kinda had to be here 1996 and be a teen :-)

I'll give the movie 7/10 because of the nostalgia! :-D
