He teams up with his cousin, who has spent five years writing a film script, and turns into a film producer. One of the problems is that the German financiers expect a porn film... Written by

In this Swedish comedy, we get to meet the looser Zingo, and a whole bunch of other sad and pathetic figures. Zingo wants to settle down and have a nice family life, but it takes money to start a new life. He convinces a producer that he will do a bizarre porn-film for the German market, featuring one of Sweden´s most respected actors and a moose.
All kinds of stereotypes are lined up here: the main character who wants to prove to his dad that he can succeed with his life, his younger girlfriend who just wants to party all night, his aggressive and stupid best friend. We also have the brutal biker who cuts peoples thumbs off, but also enjoys Bergman-films.
With this comes a poor script which is little believable. Björn Kjellman doesn´t succeed with making his character likeable at all, he´s quite the opposite actually. Nor does the other actors. The director clearly wanted to make a fresh and controversial movie with "Zingo", but fails.
Some jokes works, but most of the black humour misses the mark completely. It could have been good, but no. Great soundtrack though.
