Linda, a blonde game show hostess, is unexpectedly brought to the party by Katinka's brother. Linda is greeted warmly at first, her brusque and liberated manners are entertaining and fresh. But during the course of the evening Linda stretches the groups invisible social rules of hospitality. Contempt starts to grow, thus unfolding the groups hidden prejudices. Written by Anonymous

understated and very witty
28 November 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I actually can't quite understand why the overall reviews are so poor–it is one of my favorite Scandinavian films. Besides doing a great deal with very little (simple set, few actors), it is extremely effective. Witty, maybe a little harsh on Swedish society, and humor that is dry throughout. It definitely pushes buttons. I can only imagine how much fun they had sitting around writing the script. Everyone is so caught in their roles they are at a complete loss for party crashers in the form of a shiftless twin brother and date that show up at Katinka's party. Mia Mountain's performance as Katinka is outstanding as she tries to maintain her sense of propriety and role in this uptight little world she's built around herself. The house, the job as curator, the deathly boring and servile boyfriend, the holdover childhood friends, and the brother!

Brilliant!!!
