Despite the negative comments, I liked it.
29 April 2003 | by (Cambridge, UK) – See all my reviews

It seems odd to see so many negative comments about this film - Maybe the people who watched it were expecting something more like "Cliffhanger".

This is one of those quirky films that the British do very well - It's not hugely about anything, though in some ways it's a "coming of age" movie for people who have already come of age. I have nothing else to add about the plot, that has been covered in other reviews but if you want to watch a nice film that is very British and possibly requires quite a subtle sense of humour at times to appreciate (though other times, not so subtle; we still stereotype Swedes better than they do!).
