Vingar av glas is one of the best Swedish films in recent years. It is funny, sad, uplifting, heartbreaking. As Jalla! Jalla! this film centers around arranged marriages, but the two movies treat the topic differently. Jalla! Jalla! is a comedy while Vingar av glas is a comedy drama. The latter is also the better film of the two since it does bring up serious aspects of being a Swedish teenager with immigrant parents.
I have never thought Alexander Skarsgård is a good actor. However, in this film he delivers a fine performance. Sara Sommerfeld and Said Oveissi are also great. (7/10)
