Alex's high opinion of himself isn't backed up by reality as he is unemployed and having trouble with his girlfriend. When he finally gets a job with the local council/municipality of Hudiksvall his life is about to change. Suddenly Alex finds himself the leader of a local theatre group of people with learning difficulties. Through their work together, Alex comes to appreciate that we all have our own talents which can grow if given the opportunity and support. "How many cranberries are in the world?" is based on the work of the Glada Hudik Theatre whose performances have met with success in Sweden and internationally since it was formed in 1996. Written by
This movie is wonderful!! It is really fun, sad, entertaining and just brilliant. Very moving :) It is about a young man who doesn't really know what to do in life, who starts to work with mentally retarded people. They live a very boring life and for example, they spend 8 years trying to learn how to tie their shoes. Alex makes them have fun, something that is not popular with their parents. Instead of treating them like they are sick, he treats them like real, normal people. The movie is about doing what you want, not what's right. It is about breaking many rules in order to win something bigger. This movie will touch your heart in many ways. It is great! Go see it!
