Well, just 5 minutes ago I ejected the DVD from my player, and I'm now considering burning my ol' Samsung 511 just because crap like "Paradiset" have defiled it.
I don't know what's wrong with us Swedes. It's as if our taste in movies descends to the pits of hell when the origin of the movie is Swedish. The acting in this movie embarassing (why do swedish actors always stutter?) and the story is a bit incoherent. It's almost a requirement to have read the book. I HAVE read the book and I must say that even then I found the story a bit confusing.
Please, don't repeat my mistake and see this piece of crap.
