Unusual love story
18 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young priest from an affluent background with frustrations and doubts about about his faith requests a transfer to a failing church in one of the dreary suburbs of Gothenburg, Sweden (NOT Stockholm as the fellow from Stockholm that wrote another review on here stated).

While going door to door in his new, disinterested parish he comes across a young lady in a wheelchair. The two share an attraction, but he has trepidations about dating someone on welfare and in a wheelchair.

This is an interesting dramedy with some fine performances. It dares to tackle some subjects that are largely taboo in most cinema. The characters and most of the dialog rings true. On the whole, an interesting Swedish film.
