Storyline

The Karlsson Brothers is a "confusion" comedy about two identical-twin brothers, each initially unaware of the other's existence. One brother is a successful, perfectionist lawyer living in Stockholm. The other brother lives in the North of Sweden with a wife and children, and is a notoriously unfaithful ne'er-do-well. The brothers meet for the first time as they go through their deceased mother's estate. Their meeting leads to a series of challenging mix-ups, turning both their lives on end. The brothers' differences prove gradually to be a source of strength, and their newfound friendship will change their lives forever. Written by Anonymous

American style comedy
28 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a mildly entertaining film. It starts out as a European art film and ends like an American soap. This is true both in terms of filming style and use of language by the actors. Actually it ends by being a pastiche on an American soap. This is actually quite annoying. It is almost as if the film is dubbed. The mannerisms of an American soap, the hair cut of the leading actress, everything seems model on an American original. This is all done without any irony whatsoever. This I find annoying. It is as if the writer and director have no pride in their own craft. What would be wrong in making a European film? Why this mindless copying of an American style?
