If you're a "Kurt Olsson-fan", don't miss it
15 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

Critics tend to treat these films built on characters from tv-series in a patronizing way, but I think Wennberg's and Brandeby's efforts really are worth while. Nice picturing of Gothenburg in the fifties is a bonus you don't expect of a film like this. A lot of laughs, many of them referring to time-typical events, and a small part nicely played by Per Oscarsson.
