Well-crafted film; fun to watch and packed with meaning
29 April 2006 | by (NJ) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film at Tribeca--Bjorne and most of the cast were there. He is charming and totally gorgeous, but even so, I went into this thinking it was likely to be either silly or pretentious. Oh, it is neither! The production values are tremendous, especially considering how low the budget was for this film, and the acting is uniformly superb. But fundamentally, it is a tremendously cool FILM--not a story that could translate well to the page or the stage, since visuals, dialogue and nuance are so essential. It's entertaining just as a road movie with a lot of quirky, lovable characters, but it works on many levels as allegory/metaphor, as semi-autobiography, or as fantasy. He's woven the typically American movie characteristics of lots of action and a big canvas with the Swedish sense of reserve and surrealism. Go see this whenever or wherever you can--you'll leave the theater with a smile on your face, and images and ideas that will stay with you!
