Quite a disappointment (even though I didn't expect much)
18 May 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film is based on the other "Sällskapsresan"-films and it is highly recommended that you watch at least 2-3 of them before you watch this one.

Summary: Stig-Helmer (Lasse Åberg) has now reached a high age, and as always, when people are close to the end they usually start thinking about the beginning. In this case we will follow how Stig found love for the first time when he is about 20 years old.

SPOILER: Stig-Helmer is kicked out of his home at an age of 19 by his parents so he moves in with his uncle, uncle's wife and cousin, and then later on starts working in his uncle's music shop.

As usual Stig-Helmer is a wimp, and his cousin Hjördis (played by Tove Edfelt) is trying quite hard to make him less wimpish. The very little she does makes him a little bit more "wild" which is later attractive in the eyes of Annika, the girl who he has fallen in love with.

To sum it up. This film was not that entertaining. The story was told at a slow pace and it felt like it needed quite a lot of work when it comes to the script. It is an embarrassment compared to i.e. "Snowroller". The only really good things I can say is that I found the lighting to be great, and that the character Hjördis was really charming and likable. A cousin we all would like to have. Good acting by Tove Edfelt.

This film gets 4/10. It is more of a 3/10, but I liked Hjördis so much. It is too slow, and the script is no original at all. Quite pathetic actually.
