This is a beautiful, charming and interesting Swedish film about three exotic siblings (one who's a control freak, one who is a lesbian/bisexual and one who eats magic mushrooms) who takes care of a fantastic garden, and their new neighbours who has some problems in their marriage. These problems gets worse when the husband thinks his wife is having an affair with one of the neighbours.
In Sweden it was promoted as a "sex-comedy" but I think that's a bit wrong because this is so much more. It's not one of the best films I've seen but it's really good if you compare it with other recently released Swedish films. And it shows such a beautiful environment.
The acting is mostly good with both famous and new actors in the leading parts.
