Stereotypes, tediousness and funny dialogue
1 January 2008 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Swedish film where a young man turns priest, falls in love with a girl in a wheelchair and begins to doubt his faith. A stereotypical case of "opposites attract", the priest is a coward from a rich background, and the girl quite tough, living with her alcoholic mom in some skid row, this film falls on hard times where most films fail in trying to work against stereotypes. The only kicker being the funny banter between the main characters. The tedious story-line and rough total feel of the film bored me. If only the director had injected more into the characters, especially the ones that simply wait in the side-lines, I'm sure this film would have moved somewhere else, but as is, it's simply stale bread with only a couple of good, surprising ingredients thrown in.
