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

Perfect mix of tragedy and comedy
12 February 2008 | by MrVibratingSee all my reviews

If you have some the least bit of shadenfreude in you, this movie will have you in stitches. The actors, screenwriters and the director should all be praised for their ability to turn something so horribly sad and pathetic as a sex/marriage trip for single men to Estonia to something this insanely funny.

You see the characters created fantastically by the experienced Killing gang and shudder; could this have been me? Will I ever end up like this? This passes quickly as someone says something screamingly funny or so cringe-worthy you can feel your skin crawl.

The plot moves perfectly, set to the wastes of mid-Sweden and the suburbs of Estonia. The characters, the buildup, the tension and the angst leads to an apocalyptic and hysterical finale that you will never forget.

Never, ever see this movie alone, single, dumped or depressed.
