In my top 10 of all time
17 June 2006 | by sallylisterSee all my reviews

I haven't seen this for several years, so detail is quite hazy, but when I did it was right up there as a favourite. Make sure you see (if English) the subtitled version, not the dubbed version - it makes a huge difference. As I remember it, the film is not high on action and excitement (it's not trying to do that), and I suspect that the Swedish / Scottish sense of humour is not everyones (the film's languages are Swedish and Scottish(?) ). It's just a nice feel-good movie, for when you aren't looking to watch something for its action, drama, or educational value. Perhaps a little quirky compared to mainstream western movies, but it is not at all odd (movies I'd call odd include "The Avengers, .... ). Probably more likely to be enjoyed by more traditional, conservative people. We were all 20 when we saw it and liked it, but I'd guess more likely to be a favourite with elderly people. I wish I could find a copy here in NZ.

A memorable shot is of a sign on a lawn "Forget about the dog - beware of the occupants".
