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

Probably the worst movie ever made (at least in Sweden).
28 February 2002 | by (The mighty cold country of Sweden) – See all my reviews

The movie deals with various issues like racism, alienation, love and other things that the youth of Sweden are supposed to be interested in. Well, maybe we are but this movie is full of clichés and just plain stupid. The nicest thing I can say about it is that the actors can´t act and the main characters name is John-John. STUPID, STUPID, STUPID movie! Don´t see it, not even if your life is at stake. I wouldn´t at least.
