Light "boy meets girl" comedy
12 August 2014 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This heavily unpopular norwegian motion-picture marked the return of Kåre Hedebrant (here as Kåre Gillis Hedebrant), after his remarkable role and performance in "Let the right one in" 3 years before.

Our "Oskar" is now "Lucas" (just a saying). Lucas is a Swedish boy who moves to Norway and falls in love with a girl named Susanne. Unfortunately for Lucas, things aren't that simple to conquer this girl, even though – or maybe because - he is a very sympathetic boy – and it's widely known that most nice boys aren't lucky with girls.

That said, the movie is by no means a drama. It has mostly comedy elements and a generally lightweight atmosphere. It certainly is a major change from the dark, heavy atmosphere from "Let the right one in". This one is a coming of age film, but it's also fun, youthful and original.

Even though "Let the right one in" has a much bigger impact and is way more memorable in many ways, I prefer this one by far. Unfortunately, this one has a pretty bad soundtrack. It's all about crappy modern music. I wish this one had a soundtrack consisting of good old songs, like in "Let the right one in".

Kåre (Gillis) Hedebrant shines in another excellent performance.

Title in Portugal: not know by me.
