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

1975
19 February 2006 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

That is the year this Swedish movie is about. The summer is very hot and an immigrant is waiting for his wife to arrive. While waiting he meets a Finnish girl and some drama occurs.

The director makes his debut here and he has much to learn and mostly about telling a story. You've seen everything many times before and so has he. Too many times. But the good thing here are the actors and especially the photo. The camera sometimes "freeze" a moment and puts more poetry in it, than it has through the narration.

This is a first try, not without talent. But the filmmakers should maybe not go to the pictures that often.
