It's a nice, cute movie
7 February 2007 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

I'm no regular commenter but I noticed there was none so I'll make a brief and simple one.

I liked this movie, it had a nice feeling and the characters were really cute. It's is about a young girl living and going out in Stockholm's richer areas. The problem is all her relationships with her friends and lovers are really superficial. Which she finds out for herself early in the movie, she also finds a true friend but she has troubles having a "real" relationship. The music was a bit repetitive but I liked the camera work. It also felt real, I live in Stockholm and in the area where it takes place and it felt real and like it in some ways truthfully reflected the life's of "brats" in Stockholm (there are spoiled who aren't brats in Swedish culture, it really doesn't have the same meaning as in English)
