Desirée, a modern librarian with urban friends and interests is visiting her late husband's grave when she meets Benny, a simple farmer. After his mother's death Benny lives alone on the run-down farm, desperately seeking a woman to take care of him. In spite of their differences the two have the dream of finding that special someone in common, and fall passionately in love. Benny wants Desirée to move in with him and start a family as soon as possible. But being a farmer's wife is not something she is very enthusiastic about. Just presenting Benny as her boyfriend proves to be an embarrassing experience. And when she gets a tempting job offer in Stockholm she has to consider her priorities carefully.Written by
At the end of the film when Benny overtakes the hauling van with Desirée, he is doing it finally when driving to the very end of the bridge. After he stopped in front of the van, his car is just in the middle of the bridge. See more »
Another Swedish movie from the Stockholm horizon about a small city in the north of Sweden. Sometimes one wonders if you are supposed to laugh at the province and be assured in your prejudices. Probably that's the creator's idea.
This is about the dirty farmer who meets the librarian living an "unreal" life, which he obviously isn't. There is absolutely no surprises here. From the beginning to the end you know what will happen the next three minutes. OK acting by Elisabeth Carlsson and especially by Michael Nyqvist, but you still feel disappointed like you thought you would.
