A cute little nostalgia movie that deserves a U.S. release
7 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie sight unseen and was pleasantly surprised. While it's storyline is similar to something like "The Secret of My Success" (small town person with ambition finds a life and success in the big city) and it's nostalgia factor is reminiscent of "The Wedding Singer", it manages to be warmer, more charming and ultimately more memorable than either of those films.

Furthermore, the soundtrack is just great. Alphaville, Roxy Music, ELO

  • and new songs by the lead character's band that are good enough to


coax me into sending away for the CD.

It's a shame this hasn't made it to the U.S. I think it would do well here, despite the small inclusion of a few Swedish particulars that might need some quick explaining for some (particularly references to Sweden's social support system) and quick shot of a guy's weener - uptight folks can't handle that here. It also has a very American feel to it - and it's nice to see that we're one of many cultures that regrets some of its fashion choices in the past decades.

Distributors! Pick this one up! It's got hit written all over it!
