Trivia

The exterior of the TV headquarters in the movie is shot outside the H&M Headquarters in Marievik in Liljeholmen in South Stockholm. The water is Årstaviken and the bridge in the background is Årsta Bridge. When Clairie is leaving Sune and Glenn on her moped you get a glance of the big cave warehouse of Swedish public liquor company Vin&Sprit, formerly owner of the Absolute vodka brand. The warehouse is now torn down and replaced by the highly attracted apartment area Liljeholmskajen. (2014) See more »

Political ambitions more important than comedy?
13 June 2002 | by per_bratt_2741See all my reviews

Claes Eriksson's political messages has become more and more explicit in his later work with for example "Lyckad nedfrysning av herr Moro" and this movie. There are still highlights in the movie that keep you laughing for hours and will talked about with friends for years - the parody of the Swedish dance-music, for example - but the intelligent comedy leaving no room for yawns that used to be Eriksson's trademark seems to have taken a vacation. Sometimes, it seems as if the political messages - that are easy to sympathize with - are more important than the humor.

Don't get me wrong. This work is the most technically advanced movie they ever made, and it was probably the funniest Swedish movie at the time. But still - maybe Eriksson should focus on the comedy and hint some political messages instead of focusing on the politics and sneak in some comedy...?
