Unexpected great movie!
28 February 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

My wife and me went on a weekend to Østersund, Sweeden and decided to watch a Sweedish movie at the local cinema. We ended up at En gång i Phuket by dumb luck and man did we enjoy it. As two Norwegians we expected to see a dull and boring Swedish movie but this one got to be one of the best Sweden has ever produced. The humor was perfect and we, along with the rest of the audience laughed throughout the whole movie. I recommend this one to all Scandinavians and it's a pity it didn't reach the cinemas in Norway. Some of the actors may not have been the best around and my fellow country girl Jenny Skavlan is limited but she along with the Sweedish actors performed well above what we had expected.
