Simple what-you-guess-it-is-is-also-what-you-get film
Quite unexpectedly a semi-delightful film. Stringently directed by Hannes Holm, helmer of Swedish films often honed-in on mid-life crises, this is more of the same. Starring Martina Haag, also script-writer and the author of the book that this film is based upon, who plays a single woman who desperately wants to act that she sends her CV everywhere and lies to get her dream job at Dramaten in Stockholm, where Ingmar Bergman is set to direct. At the same time, she gets romantically entangled with another actor, tries to gain acrobatic skills and is flustered by her best friend's seemingly perfect family life. All in all a little constrained due to timing problems but kind of sweet, mostly thanks to the direction and Haag's facial expressions, which is where her acting strengths lie.
Nice finish included.
