T Bone Burnett,
A week before Christmas, Estelle lands at Arlanda Airport. A year earlier, she had left Stockholm on the run with her husband Tommy and their daughter, after Tommy had taken part in one of the biggest robberies ever in the history of Swedish crime. Estelle seeks out Tommy's former cronies and claims that Tommy is on his way home. And he wants his share of the take. Word spreads like wildfire through Stockholm's underworld. If Tommy returns, the city will explode. And if he doesn't ... something even worse might happen. TOMMY is the story of the woman behind the man behind the headlines. A modern myth about when the Queen returned and the city burned. About two sisters, two mothers, three daughters and their men. Written by
This was actually quite good: Tough, raw but a bit slow at times. It was mercifully devoid of the usual Swedish feminist crap and the female lead actor was OK, although her role forced her to have a poker face all through the movie - something which you can't blame her for. Ola Rapace's figure was also quite OK, although a bit bland, but the most interesting part was Steve, the top mob. I do believe Johan Rabaeus had the most fun shooting this movie, allowing him to live out his more carnivorous inner dark sides. His character is the most interesting in the plot, for sure.
Sounds boring? Well, no it wasn't. It was actually quite brutal and had some good twists and turns. Six is actually a good grade, don't forget.
