Kjell Sundvalls absolutely worst movie ever!
30 January 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry to admit that one of my Swedish favorite directors, Kjell Sundvall, has now released his worst and dumbest work ever made. This film gives you nothing and absolutely nothing. It's not funny nor entertaining. It gives you no thrills, no engagement or excitement. Not at all. You can't avoid thinking about your duties tomorrow, and the next week, while watching this crap. My advise to Kjell Sundvall is to look at his colleague Kay Pollack, who took time out for more than one decade, and do the same thing. Gather your inspiration and power to come back with a masterpiece. You can do it Kjell! While you wait - watch "Jägarna" (The Hunters) once again. That is Kjell at his best! Thank you!
