A group of people arrives by boat to attend a party on a small island. They experience great difficulties while trying to go ashore. All the alcohol for the party is on the boat while the people on the island have all the food, and the only neighbor on the island, Garbo, is not as friendly as one would wish.Written by

This is an overrated so-called "comedy classic". Many Swedish film legends are in this film but Hasse Alfredsson, Tage Danielsson and Gösta Ekman are very unfunny. They must have written this together one summer night after lots of vodka. The only good thing is that Birgitta Andersson and Monica Zetterlund is in it.
Many Swedes love this film, why, I just don't know. It is a complete mystery to me. Maybe they see themselves when they try to celebrate midsummer.
I hope people in other countries don't think this is the best Sweden has to offer.
