Storyline

Three miles north of Molkom, hidden deep in the lakeside forests of Sweden, lies Ängsbacka, a 21st Century playground for adults. Once a year, their gates open to a thousand international participants, placed in "Sharing Groups" at random. A Swedish celebrity, a Californian hippie, a Finnish grandmother and a backpacking Australian rugby coach, who stumbled on the wrong party, are amongst the group that take us on an unforgettably quirky, two-week emotional rollercoaster. Firewalking, shamanism, tantric sex and a myriad other physical, psychological and esoteric experiences guide our unlikely heroes towards enlightment, love, loathing and themselves. Will they ever be the same again? Written by Third Eye Film Productions

Having experienced this bombastic failure, Anders tried to cover-up the incident by pretending he was suffering an epileptic seizure. See more »

Hilarious!
28 September 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this film a few years ago at the Melbourne Film Festival. The audience loved it. I found it hilarious and unforgettable. It's a 'Fish out of Water' Documentary about a young rugby player from Sydney who is sent to a New Age Alternative Lifestyle Festival in Molkom, Sweden. There have been many failed attempts to parody the 'New Age' movement but this film demonstrates once and for all that it parodies itself. It also manages to do it with compassion. I have been waiting for a distributor to pick it up here in Australia and I've tried to buy it on DVD. I notice that it has recently been exhibited in the UK and would love to know how it went. It will be a great shame if this film doesn't find a big audience. Google it and see what the critics had to say.
