A feel-good movie straight from the north of Sweden
Honestly I watched this movie because I had seen Michael Nyqvist's performance in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movies and I was wondering if he had been a good actor before those or they were the ones that kind of "made him". I have to say that he indeed was a brilliant actor in 2002 when this movie came out. On the top of that this film has actually a female lead (I think Elisabet Carlsson deserves a lot of credit because her acting is outstanding too) and they are both very believable in their roles. All right, the story is far from being original. We have seen two people from different backgrounds hang out before like a thousand times. So the story is the reason why I gave the movie only eight stars because the acting is spot on (not even the supporting actors make a single fault). Dialogues and camera work are all excellent. Finally, I have to say I'm so glad that every Swedish review I have read so far was really positive. I have studied Swedish at the university and we were taught that Swedish women get offended when receiving old fashioned courtship and this movie proves exactly the opposite thing. Eight stars and a great movie.
