Vägen ut
7 January 2000 | by (E-tuna,Sweden) – See all my reviews

*sorry for spelling mistakes* This movie is good but it isn't the best movie in this genre. Björn Kjellman is a very good actor but his film Adam&Eva really sucks.

But if you are a fan of Björns you really should see this movie. I give this movie 6 out of 10.
