Best Swedish Comedy in Years
3 January 2001 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film marks the beginning of a career that hopefully will spawn number of good films in the future. Little known Fares has made an intelligent and very funny film. I totally recommend all people who have the opportunity to see this movie.
