Does a class-reunion have the potential to bring life into living?
25 February 2002 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Someone has said that you seldom regret what you have done but often regret what you did not do. The main character, Magnus, might not regret what he did not do but he definitely wonders about what might have happened would he have run away with, Hillevi, when they both were teens.

Magnus, now in his late thirties is having a slight mid-life crisis. He is living a safe and dull life with his wife, their daughter and experience nothing but a suburban life-style lacking excitement and anything at all relating to "carpe diem". When Magnus receives an invitation to a high-school reunion things change.

The directors, Hannes Holm and Måns Herngren, have once again succeeded in making a movie about a particular stage of life. As a viewer you have a great time laughing away to everyday situations that are so familiar but normally will never be brought up for discussion. There are plenty of great scenes which are familiar to anyone having experienced or heard others mention their class-reunions.

All in all Klassfesten is a terrific movie with great actors and a great story.
