Fun & unusual
14 May 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I wasn't really familiar with Lars Molin when I watched this movie. That is not a problem. Molin's movie is a very entertaining, a bit twisted little film about a 60-ish woman who suddenly seizes the opportunity to spend her life as she wants to. She moves away from her husband, a self-pitying drunk, and she has affairs with several men. But most of all, this is a film about unusual people, some of which have lost all hope in life, others who have just found their path. Stylistically, this is an interesting experience, too. There are a lot of sweet images of Swedish nature, and as if this is not enough Molin adds a layer of slightly sentimental music. If that was what the entire movie is all about, it would have ended up being an annoyingly romantic, rosy affair. But after these nature-celebratory images we are served scenes that display human relations in a very raw, unsentimental manner. "You are a f**** pompous head of s**t. I loved you as soon as I laid my eyes on you." is one memorable quote that rubs up against what would otherwise easily have become too sweet, too sentimental.
