Storyline

A group of lonesome bachelors on a bus trip to Tallinn find partners for life. The matchmaker is not on his first journey and should be well prepared. But already on the bus, through the Swedish landscape, he meets with unforseen troubles. Once in Tallinn, and in spite of assistance from colleagues from the other side of the Baltic Sea, the naked reality takes over. Written by Anonymous

One of the best mockumentaries ever.
29 November 2004 | by lennholm82See all my reviews

One of the best mockumentaries ever, my favourite along with "This is Spinal Tap". The title is a word play, it can be read as something akin to "Addicted to Tallinn" but also as "Whoremonger/punter on Tallinn" (and the 'on' is not a grammar error made by me), the latter interpretation being a reference to the plot which involves a busload of Swedish men going to Tallinn to find women.

I don't know if it is available internationally with English subtitles but I do hope so, for everyone else. Some of the fun might be lost though since the characters are to some extent based on the social differences (and dialects) between people in different parts of Sweden. It's great to see the actors play different characters. Especially Robert Gustavsson who flawlessly acts such incredibly different characters.
