This is a conventionally told double love story in a multicultural setting. If nothing else it's charming, and the actors are interesting and give good performances. I agree with a previous reviewer that it's like a quality version of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, without the Hollywood glucose all over it, and also in the less worn-out setting of Sweden. The story is well told and keeps up the interest, but the end is predictable (like I said, conventional) and a bit too cute. I didn't really understand the problem between Måns and his girlfriend (Jenny?), they seem to fall out of love just because it suited the plot, and I thought that Måns' and Roro's third co-worker, the soul brother with the afro, was a bit too cute and multi-cultural (yes I got it -- we're one big family of cool dudes). My favourite role was Roro's very cool father. And a protagonist in the shape of a pudgy middle-aged Arab, you don't have that too often in a movie, do you?
