Storyline

The Swedish summer is on and Göran, recently dumped by his girlfriend, is searching for the woman of his dreams. Göran is not altogether in harmony with himself or his work situation and is trying a little bit too hard to please everyone around him. Unlike his best friend however, he is not prepared to compromise with love and settle for the less than perfect girl. In pursuit of love he sails out to a Midsummer party in the seductive Swedish archipelago. Unexpected love lurks in the bright Swedish summer's night ready to rock the raft of romance. Comedy and romance are the main ingredients when a story unfolds about young urban self conscious people in a high society setting. Written by Stella Nova Film

Perfect movie about being imperfect
10 July 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

In my book, this is one of the best and most enjoyable "Bridget Jones" type movies, albeit with a male protagonist. The characters initially seems like a hopeless crowd, and the humor is mostly based around their flawed relationships, but also the stresses and challenges of combining a meaningless job with looking for the perfect girlfriend play in. This movie does this very elegantly, with small but important scenes conveying the story to the viewer, and without being too obvious this movie seems fresh and surprisingly funny. The movie also avoids a lot of the pitfalls one sees in comedies these days. I would recommend this movie to anyone looking for a "feel good"-movie.
