Storyline

Patrik is an air force pilot, one of the most daring and promising. However, while diving he breaks his spine and is paralyzed from the waist and down. His anger and self pity know no bounds and he ultimately breaks up from his girlfriend Mia. But a new therapist tries to help him to accept that there are other things in life than being a maverick pilot with an attitude. Written by Mattias Thuresson

A little insight into the swedish airforce
1 September 2002 | by SegelflygarenSee all my reviews

For me as a flight enthusiast it's fun to watch movies with a lot of flying in it (obvious). "Älskar, älskar inte" has a bit of a Top Gun wannabe-feeling at first, with all the airphotos of Viggen rushing through on your TV screen. It's nice though, as long as there's no drama in it. So I recommend to watch the first 30 minutes or so.
