There is only one word to describe this movie: Warm
After Jalla, Jalla and Kopps I knew to a certain degree what to expect. Nevertheless I was pleasantly surprised. This certainly is a Scandinavian movie, with all the little quirks and subtleties. And I found myself smiling almost throughout. All the cheap cuts and clichés were playfully dodged, and I was left with a pervasive joy over the little things in life. I was afraid that this was yet another movie about cultural differences, with token minorities. Luckily this was not the case at all, and all the characters were lovable and real. The film takes serious issues like tradition, relationships and friendship, and just "whips them around" in unexpected ways. Without resorting to tear-jerking.
This is a small movie, by any extent, but it certainly made my hour-and-a-half much, much better! I recommend it.
