Great performances in a well written and only slightly naive comic drama.
11 January 2001 | by per.astromSee all my reviews

Excellent new trend in Swedish cinema, drama/comedy of the clash between cultures. Have got more than one thing in common with Josef Fares´ "Jalla! Jalla!" (Sweden) and Damien O'Donnell´s "East is east" (UK). Greater depth, and more nuances, in "Vingar av glas", while "Jalla! Jalla" is the funnier and more charming. "East is east", while still a good film, can not quite compete.
