The year is 1964 and it's summer in a little rural village in Dalarna, Sweden. The two friends Anders and Börje rides around with their mopeds, waiting for something to happen. Then suddenly from out of nowhere a girl gets off the bus in a short yellow skirt. It's Sofia - a plain copy of Brigitte Bardot. It's like if Anders and Börje have been blinded by the sun. They're both obssessed by sex and slowly starts to figure out how to see Sofia naked. Soon they get a brilliant idea... Why not make a movie and let Sofia have the leading role. Everything doesn't fall right into place, but this is the beginning of a summer with incidents and secrets that the boys even in their wildest dreams never could have believed. Written by
This is another one of those overly contrived "Geeks overcoming odds to become hero" hollywood-ish story.
This theme has been played to death. It is nothing more than another left wing ideology with the weak overcoming the strong. Anders (Jacob) is the typical king of dweebness. He lust after Sofia (Ulving), gets to have his way with her and then finds true love with another girl at the end. What a cool nerd?
Unfortunately, we have been over-saturated with this kind of motion picture propaganda. Nerds and geeks no longer have to fear Darwin's rule of nature. They have these movies to promote their cause worldwide. At the end, it was just another bad attempt on filmmaking. Watch at your own peril.
