Brown is beautiful
25 April 2004 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is not about the condition of Sweden and the Swedes, it is more about the condition of everybody everywhere. Still this film is very Swedish and you have to live here to understand, to laugh at the right places and to feel sad, when you're supposed to.

But it's very well narrated and director Tomas Alfredsson knows exactly where to push the script, which he probably has had cut down in a perfect way. Still the film, with four different episodes rolling together, is more than three hours long. But it doesn't feel long. The acting is not really realistic (it ain't meant to be). But especially Maria Kulle and Ulf Brunnberg are making the performances of their lives.

There is hope for Swedish film, obviously. This is a new way of making comedy. If this is a comedy.
