Ambitious!
3 April 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

In many ways, the plot in this movie closely resembles Crash (2004). Prejudice is rife, tensions arise slowly and climaxes around a horrific traffic accident. Generally, Swedish society is generally believed to be pretty low on racial prejudice, at least that is the picture painted in the general media. However, director (and immigrant) Othman Karim wants to show another Sweden in this movie.

Most Swedes in this movie are generally portrayed as cold, greedy, distant and indifferent. The notable exception is the African man portrayed by Danny Glover, who is nice to everybody but encounters hostility wherever he goes.

The movie is stylish and contains many beautifully shot scenes, not often seen in Swedish movies. Though the plot is flawed and incoherent and the quality of the acting is both high and low, it is apparent that this is one of the more ambitious movies made in Sweden in recent years, and though it has its flaws it is pretty entertaining and well worth watching.
