Quotes

Mona: [before going to sleep] Was it really, really bad?
Bosse: What?
Mona: You know! That thing I sang!
Bosse: No, it wasn't bad idea, not at all.
Bosse: I think, that you are OK, as you are.
Mona: What do you mean? What do you mean with that?
Bosse: That you... you... you are you, this matters the most. The people have to be what they are. So, forget it. It's worthless dreaming about things you know, that will never come true
Mona: Yeah... you're right.

Sweet little nothing
29 December 2000 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Susanne Bier achieved great fame in Denmark for her previous movie "Den eneste ene" so her new movie was eagerly anticipated in Denmark even though it was in Swedish.

It is a new comedy about everyday people. This time it is about a woman who is crazy about "Melodi Festivalan", a song contest for pop music. Helena Bergström is simply wonderful as the main character and it is mainly because of her that the movie is bearable.

Otherwise the movie is predictable, so sweet it is bad for your teeth and with a ending that might been played down a notch or two.
