I have hardly seen a better drama made in Sweden's history of movie making. The story is day to day life of Swedes and Thais but made strongly with strong script and play.
Whoever have lived in Scandinavia would easily associate him/herself with the life and people pictured in the movie.
Great stress that a working single women with kids have, cold and long winters and desire to escape, a normal happy fine young guy so isolated so that he has lost his skills and hope to meet his future partner in his own country as society is making relations more complicated than ever, ever growing aged population of the country and the challenge to take care of them specially if they are complaining ones (I have that experience as my fist job in Sweden), the simple, clean and honest spirit of Swedish people (Majlis was not a criminal and could easily call Medicare same moment when the unintentional accident happened), ...
There is no exaggerated story line going on throughout the whole film. All sharp edges rounded to bring a pleasant feeling to the viewer. For example script never lets Wilda get hurt in spite of so much of dangers she was exposed to. The down to earth realistic picture attracts many. The film finely promotes the values such as prioritizing and loving kids, family relations, caring and loving animals, understanding and accepting people with other sexual orientations, loving one another in any circumstance. A touch of environment saving values was maybe missing to make it complete.
I give my Award to Kaisa for a powerful play. Majlis was nothing shorter than her in quality of play and of course the great job done by Glenn is close to a master piece. Least quality of play was in my opinion by Joy she was basically only there, no special quality of acting, no face impressions, no body language, very poor act but she is pretty and have an attractive pictographic face of a lovely young girl which may bring her success in the future if mixed with more skills.
An awesome job of shooting is to appreciate greatly. When there is abundance of light in your shooting environment doing a good job is easier but the quality presented in this shooting was of world class. I congratulate the shooting team.
I am a Iranian born Swedish involved in movie industry in Iran.
