I went to this movie, mainly because of the lack of other releases in this small town I was visiting. I've never been a fan of Colin Nutley (or his other half Helena Bergström), but i tried to watch this movie with an open mind. A few minutes into the film, I found myself laughing at scenes that obviously were meant to be serious, and dramatic. This pretty much sums up the whole film.
The acting was OK, but seriously - would "Helena Bergström" get any roles at all if she wasn't married to a director?
The story was just plain right stupid, and the scenes where the band are playing were pathetic.
A critic at a large Swedish newspaper gave this movie 2 / 5 ... I'd say that's being a bit too generous.
