Storyline

Political party leader David Holst, one of Sweden's most popular politicians, is handsome, funny, popular and predicted as the country's next Prime Minister. But what at first appears to be an easy victory turns into a humbling defeat as another party wins the elections and four more years of leading the country, Then, when David suddenly falls in love, the problem is not that he's already married or that he's fallen in love with another man....but that the man he's fallen head over heels in love with, Martin, is the only man on earth he cannot love. He is an up-and-comer in the rivaling party that won the elections! David is risking everything - his family, his party and his own name. If they can't keep their relationship a secret, a public scandal could be a career destroyer. But David doesn't have the nerve to play this kind of game and eventually the mistakes and misunderstandings pile up and their love is threatened to be lost. Almost. "Four More Years' is a funny, daring, clever... Written by Quintiane

Politicians who are civilized AND gay - obviously NOT made in the USA
25 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Four More Years is the lighthearted and charming story of a forty-something Swedish politician named David, the leader of a political party, whose wife Fia is his chief aide and adviser.

In the aftermath of a disastrous election, which instead of making him Prime Minister as expected loses his party almost all its influence in parliament, David falls in love with Martin, a younger, openly gay leader of the opposition party that trounced David's in the election. (The movie was directed by the actress who plays Fia.) There follows an Adam's Rib sort of dilemma, with lovers on opposite sides of a professional matter of great importance to both - in addition to David's anxiety over coming out as gay.

Americans will have a hard time believing politicians of opposing parties ANYWHERE can treat each other with unfailing mild-mannered courtesy, but it may well be true that Swedish politicians actually are civilized human beings, unlike the snarling savages who dominate American politics.

And gay American men may not recognize the intensity of the passion between David and Martin. I think the two guys are very sexy, both individually and together, but viewers conditioned by the hairless twenty-something gym bunnies and feral copulation that distinguish American gay movies will find these two men unattractive.

Anybody looking for fireworks - either political or sexual - will be disappointed in this movie; but as a look at how civilized, mature (but not old) gay men with serious interests outside of themselves might behave, Four More Years is a revelation and a welcome breath of fresh air in the world of gay movies.

All the performances are good, the dialog is intelligent, the story is not as predictable as it could be, and there are some very entertaining supporting characters - particularly David's mother and Martin's father. I enjoyed the movie enough to watch it again right now.
