Silly but Entertaining Swedish Comedy
12 September 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Stockholm, the gynecologist Elisabeth "Lisa" Staf (Helena Bergström) receives a ticket from the car-park attendant Gudrun Nyman (Maria Lundqvist) when she parks her car in a forbidden place. Lisa justifies telling that she is going to the wedding of her son and she is late; however Gudrun does not accept the excuse and they offend each other. In the dinner party, Elisabeth's husband tells to the guests that they are divorcing.

Gudrun is a shy widow that stays at home, and her daughter Liselotte (Erica Braun) convinces her to go to her gynecologist; surprisingly she is Lisa and they become friends. Lisa is independent and likes to dance and the nightlife, and she convinces Gudrun to go out with her to the Heartbreak Hotel to drink and dance. When Gudrun meets her former husband Åke Nyman (Claes Månsson), the relationship between the two women is affected.

"Heartbreak Hotel" is a silly but entertaining Swedish comedy about the friendship of two forty and something year-old women with different temperaments. The plot is a kind of combination between "Sex and the City" with "Thelma & Louise" and the result is a pleasant comedy. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "A Vida Começa aos 40" ("The Life Begins at 40")
