Rolf lived his whole life for his TV-show. He's neglected the people close to him year after year; he never seemed to have any time left over for his wife, his kids or his friends. One day Rolf learns that the TV-network that he so devotedly worked for is now aiming for a younger audience and his show is terminated. His life crumbles. Suddenly he finds himself contacting friends and relatives he left behind a long time ago and the people Rolf meet lead him to events that forever changes his life. Written by
The plot is uncomplicated, to say the least. This is the "Death of a Salesman"-syndrome, however light years away from Arthur Miller's masterpiece and not THAT tragic. This is a Swedish comedy, with the heart on the right place, but it's really a little odd having a rather old man being the hero and his tragedy being the main subject.
I don't know if anyone outside Sweden is reading this, except for the IMDb people. Maybe one should explain that the main actor here, Jan "Loffe" Carlsson is a well-known Swedish "clown" in many entertaining circumstances since the late 60s. But he is doing fine here, making his character really believeable and without Loffe, this piece would have fallen down to earth and hadn't deserved much mentioning.
