A nice and kind "Zozo"
13 February 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

If you have Zozo, you can say that this is kind of like it, except that Zozo is a very serious and realistic movie, when this is more like a "feelgood" movie about a boy that want to be an athlete like Kajsa Bergkvist. He comes to Sweden, away from the war in his country, in the start it's very hard to live in the new country, but he's starting to grip the situation and gets a lot of friends and respect. I liked this movie, it was fun sometimes and the actors was good, and sometimes brilliant, especially the little boy(played by the infamous Ali Ali) and the hot dog-man(played by the wonderful actor Peter Stormare), but(and this is a big "but")the movie was far to short, and it did'not got the energy that a movie must have.
