Excellent Swedish comedy that captured the essence of Swedish mentality throughout the 90's. A backstabbing government had turned their backs on Swedish filmmakers and this is the response. Ronny and Ragge managed to do something that had been a hard nut to crack for the entire Swedish film-communion (nutley came close with änglagård but everything falls apart with Wolff), they showed the Swedish audience that political irony and classic slapstick were a winning concept in Sweden too. Ronny and Ragge are two typical middle-class Swedish teens in search for love, lust and political justice. They live in a quiet small town far away from the metropolitan city of Stockholm. They spend their time driving around in their car spreading their political agenda to the locals (mostly hill-billies and drunks). Ronny and Ragge takes you back to the time where the small town was something you praised. The little man in the big country. One would say a Swedish gilbert grape! Although Ronny and Ragge was aired one the legendary Swedish youth-show Unga tvåan(youth two) it got a wider audience than Swedish favorite host Ingvar Oldsberg. Swedish hillbilly jokes mixed with serious political message makes the Ronny and Ragge characters to two of the most important teenage stars of the 90's. A must see!
