But one day Magda brings home a new friend, Helena, caller at the local bingo hall. Fredrik is soon smitten by the frank and outspoken 29-year-old. Helena and a self-confident Magda help Fredrik to see why his horse never wins the races. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Plot only mildly interesting
7 August 2005 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I wasn't very impressed with the plot about a distracted jockey who tries to have his race horse win the races. It was more interesting to learn about Magda (played terrifically by Märta Ferm), her problems at school and how she gets a new friend, Helena the bingo caller.

It is a bit surprising to see Daniel Gustavsson as a 30-something single father and I'm not quite sure that he comes off really well. Didn't he play teenage sons only a couple of years ago?

The film's star is instead Frida Hallgren who seem to appear in film after film with increasing ability, although she doesn't cry or have a fit in this particular movie. Maybe it was wise that the plot didn't get into deep about a possible romance between Fredrik and Helena and the subplot about Helena's vegetarian dog sitter could have been scrapped altogether.
