Can't say enough great things about this film.
27 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing this outstanding film at the Palm Springs ShortFest Film in 2009, and it has stayed with me ever since. This is the type of movie I'd pay money to see again. It's a marvel of great storytelling - it's entertaining start to finish, it makes its point in a thoroughly affecting yet really delightful way. To anyone who feels like their parents - or anybody else - just doesn't listen to them, this movie will really hit home but in a fantastically funny way. Writer/Director Andreas Tibblin has made a fabulous film with perfect actors, a fantastic script and establishes a tone that would make any director green with envy. It's just a joy. I can't say enough great things about this film.
