Mainstream Asperger's Syndrome (sucks)
20 January 2011 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The acting it terrible, overacting to say the least. Just because he is like the # 4 son of Stellan Skarsgård, he thinks he can act. Its just plain ignorant. If you want to see a movie that knows the true nature of Asperger's Syndrome, watch "The Social Network". And good Swedish movie, see "Låt Den Rätta Komma In"

They should have stuck to the 29 minute novel-film and not make a full feature movie. If you want to see a new talent in Swedish cinema, watch "De Malätna" by the documentary-maker Andreas Svensson.

Swedish movies have gone downhill for a long, long time. They could not make decent movie from the millennium series.
