The film is set in North-Eastern Sweden, where people commonly speak both Swedish and Finnish. However, when Reza Bagher was chosen to direct this film, he first decided that the film should include only Swedish language dialog. After few days at location in Pajala, he changed his mind and agreed that it wouldn't be authentic to omit Finnish completely. See more »
The life of two young boys in the outskirts of Sweden
I have just seen the film, and i loved it! I've read the book and it was a lot better because it had more details, but the film has a certain atmosphere of it's own that is quite magic. The way the story is told is great, and you really get involved with the film. And it is very funny as well! I emmidiately felt the urge to go see the magnificent landscapes in the film, and maybe i will some day. I loved the actors in it, Björn Kellman is always wonderful to watch, but the younger actors were great too. I liked Andreas af Enehjelm (Niila) in particular, he seems to be a very sensitive actor. Let's have more Finnish and Swedish films, the languages are beautiful and the stories go straight to the heart!
