This was one of the best romantic movies I have seen in a long time. I am from Sweden, but live in the U.S. since 15 years, and often get the opportunity to watch Swedish movies. I am glad I bought this one on DVD.
The script is sharp and witty. There are a few LOL moments, but many more just cute and amusing scenes. Something Hollywood could learn from, not trying too hard.
The anti-hero is truly that, he wants to do the right thing, but always seems to be doing the opposite. There is good chemistry between the two main players. Josefin Nilsson does not only give a fine performance, she is a delight to look at.
The movie did not feel too predictable and it's about situations most of us have been in. Not appreciating what we have, until it's too late. See this movie if you get the chance!
