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

Quotes

Juli: I was with some friends in the woods, laughing and having a good time, when a big wasp flew in through my nose in to my head. It made this horrible sound. I tried to get it out. Then suddenly I was like a little kid and my friends had disappeared, and my mother showed up. And she took this scissor and somehow got it out of my ear. But when she took it out, it had changed into a burnt out cigarette.

a fine, melancholy comedy
1 September 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I saw it on the Karlovy Vary Filmfestival, on a crowded, well filled place. My only reasons to watch this film : Nina Persson from the cardigans, a black and white movie(love it) and last but not least, to watch a debut-movie which could be to be suited for our own festival in Germany. I was totally surprised from the warm and good humor, the stunning camera and the charm full acting of the leading roles. Another point i really like, was the soundtrack especially the old Finnish tango "oriental love". Can't take this song out of my mind on that day. A nice and individual film that reminds me a bit on Jarmusch and Kaurismäki.
