EVERYBODY'S ARYAN!
23 May 2001 | by junkySTLSee all my reviews

Quite the dismal little film. It concerns a couple, who are blonde hair and blue eyed like everyone else in this Scandinavian future, who decide to get hitched just as the unnamed country they live in goes to war with another no-name country. The man of the couple, John Johnson (Anton Vrdoljak) gets shoved around and beaten down just about as much as any man can in a film, and yet still maintains his iron will and sunny disposition. I won't spoil the end, but it's pretty nihilistic. Watch it ONLY if you're in a good mood.
