I was almost certain that I would hate this movie when I started watching it. Well, now I'm certain that I would hate this movie if it wasn't for one redeeming factor: Janne "Loffe" Carlsson. Anyone who doesn't know much about Swedish movies will have absolutely no idea of who he is what so ever, but take my word for it, he is just simply lovable. He plays his role in such a way that you just can't dislike the movie, even if you really want to and I'm sure you'll want to, because besides Loffe's superb acting, there's really nothing here to recommend, most supporting actors are bad, many characters are seriously underdeveloped and to top it off the story is both sentimental and boring, this movie is, however, worth seeing for "Loffe" alone.
Long live "Loffe"!
