Absolutely worth watching!
23 July 2005 | by DisaOJSee all my reviews

This is a really sweet and unusual movie. I won't give anything away but if you have a chance to see this movie, I would highly recommend that you do. My only regret about this film is that it is not available to the West with English subtitles. I saw it in Sweden and my Uncle Leif translated the entire movie for my benefit. I have to say what I love most about this movie is the use of older actors. Mona Malm is one of my all time favorite actresses and always gives a great performance. I have heard that Sven Wolter is the "Sean Connery of the north" this could very well be true. God forbid we should see older actors in any roles here in Hollywood! Enjoy!
