Spectacular and a must-see!
22 August 2010 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I just got back from watching it. Just wanted to pop in to say that if you're on the fence about whether to watch this movie or not: Watch it!

I'm generally not a huge fan of Swedish movies as they tend to be quite similar and somewhat thin in terms of plot and characters (huge generalization I know, bear with me), but I absolutely fell in love with this movie. It feels like a breath of fresh air in the Swedish film-industry, and leaves you feeling joyful and amazed. It's funny and sweet but not overly so, and every single character in it felt utterly real and believable to me. Great acting throughout, not least by the young Bill Skarsgård who really brought Simon to life and awoke sympathies and fondness from the audience.

Writing and direction managed to perfectly balance humor and seriousness, and to make us see the world from Simons point of view so that no action or event seemed out of place or uncalled for. I also feel that the movie portrayed Aspergers accurately, and managed to make it key to every event without exaggeration or ridicule. I predict greatness for this film.

I'm no expert, and these are my views only. I'm guessing someone else here will give a more in-depth review in time, but for now I hope I have convinced you to watch it if you get a chance. It really is worth it!
