Great movie!
6 September 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was great.

I usually don't like Swedish movies (I'm Swedish myself, mind you) but this was great. I like how the past mixed with the future and I thought the ending was really surprising!

It's not really a thriller. It's not an action movies. But I wasn't bored. I like the feeling in this movie. It's a story about true friendship. :)

It made me somewhat nostalgic.

I would really recommend this movie to people who doesn't want gunshots every five minutes, fast cars and explosions.
