Storyline

It's the summer of 1975 and Stockholm is in the grip of a record heat wave. During daytime Juan packs fruit in the market place halls, as does his brother who he also lives with. In the evening he starts his second job as a cleaner in a fast food restaurant. His wife is coming to Stockholm in seven days time and then everything must be perfect. The lack of sleep and the oppressive heat make his loneliness more apparent. Early one morning his spot at the bus stop is occupied by a beautiful woman, Juli. After a couple of chance encounters the nightly meetings with Juli become the most important thing in Juan's life. God willing, fantasy can become reality. Written by Sonet Film

Excellent DVD
8 March 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I had seen this film on the big screen and thought it was a gem. Now, a year later, I saw it on DVD and was even more impressed. It really is beautiful and very worthwhile to get on DVD. I believe that there are some films you see and find great, but then you see them a second time by chance on television or wherever, and you wonder what impressed you. Then there are films that stand the test of time, the ones that count in film history, the ones with magic. I am an unrelenting film critic, I was trained to be that way, and can say that I believe that this is one of those films. Its solemn mood, the exquisite cinematography and the soundtrack are some of the qualities that I find truly unique. I definitely look forward to seeing this guy's next picture.
