This is more drama than comedy but it does have it's comic moments. Mostly it's a drama about forbidden love and self discovery set against the backdrop of Swedish politics.
Björn Kjellman is great as the politician who gets lost when his political career is floundering and finds that most of what he thought his life was about is false. If you are uncomfortable with men kissing you may want to give this a pass, but there is no gratuitous nudity or sex.
All in all it was a surprisingly good understated comedy that is a great way to spend 90 minutes.
