Storyline

Frank leads a respectable yuppie life working at a noted Stockholm law firm. He has also been married for eight years to his beautiful wife Nenne, who runs an upscale boutique. Yet Frank is deeply bored with his life and is supremely randy. He even fantasizes about the marriage counselor that he and Nenne visit weekly. Eventually, Frank shacks up with a young fetching art student named Sofia, though the experience wracks Frank with guilt. Meanwhile, Nenne's friend and co-worker Rosie suspects that Frank is having an affair, though she does not have the nerve to tell her. Little does Rosie suspect, however, that her friend is sleeping with her lover Georg, an uptight journalist with an ego the size of Finland. Soon wires get crossed, and all hell breaks loose.

Genuinely amusing and a solid crowd pleaser.
24 September 1999 | by melbowSee all my reviews

This sharply-scripted debut comedy comes off largely by virtue of writers-directors-actors Fredrik Lindström and Felix Herngrens' remarkable ability to create funny situations and hugely likeable characters.

Felix Herngren plays Frank, a bored 30-year-old lawyer whose life crisis prompts him to an affair with a young art student he meets at his eccentric friend's (Fredrik Lindström) art gallery. Frank's wife on the other hand falls for the suave journalist Georg played by Mikael Persbrandt.

Through a consistent use of voice-overs blending Frank's sexual fantasies, obsessions and guilty conscience we follow his search of an eventful, unpredictable new life.

Cecilia Ljung is particularly good as Nenne's increasingly worried best friend Rosie, Persbrandt hilarious as her unfaithful husband and Härenstam brilliant as Frank's prim , dry boss. But the film belongs to the excellent Felix Herngren, funny and moving in an apt and well-written part.

One of the best Swedish comedies in recent years.
