Funny about a man risking it all
22 March 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

A Swedish-Norwegian comedy with actors from both countries are making this a see- worthy drama-comedy which functions well. Experienced cinematographer and film maker Kjell-Åke Andersson has here made an entertaining love comedy about a couple having it all, but then a third wheel gets on the wagon. He meets an attractive woman while going to baby swimming with his little first born, Lucas, while on daddy-leave. He starts messing up all he has achieved.

The actors are doing a good job. That's the main asset of the film. Torkel Petersson is always good when playing awkward men, and so again here. Maria Bonnevie is also great, as always. Being able to play all kinds of roles. But the price goes to Jonnys parents. They are living a stale marriage, is very funny in their interacting. They are having some brilliant moments. Sven Nordin is hilarious in his role as Jonny's pal, having his own woman problems.

The film depicts the modern man, or let's say family, which way too often do just that; mess up their lives. A film about the difficult task of living together. Give it a shot!
