Trivia

Some scenes were taken from director Ulf Malmros' own youth. One is where Erik decides to move to Stockholm because of the film company has forgotten to send the last act of Pulp Fiction (1994) to the local theatre. In real life it was _E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)_ and the projectionist came down and told the ending of the movie. See more »

Quotes

Erik: Who killed Sussie?
Pölsa: It wasn't me! Um, and nobody else either.

Simply brilliant!
26 September 2004 | by (Gothenburg. Sweden) – See all my reviews

I don't know where to start. Acting? Dialogue? Characters? Great dead-pan acting. Excellent fast-and-funny-as-hell dialogue. Superb misfit-crazy-characters. This film's got it all. That it's spoken in the Swedish accent of Värmländska just makes a great film even better. In fact, don't waste your time reading this. Go down to your local rental and get it. Pronto!

Hint: you might like this movie a lot better if you're something of a movie buff. Tons of reference humor. The good sort. ;-)
