I like anything with Mikael
8 November 2019 | by braquecubismSee all my reviews

Some reviewer missed, "bang bang orangutan" is what he said to his daughter with her her stuffed toy orangutan. I was hoping they were in the film. I think he played against type, altho he did do one where he is suicidal. It was a man falling apart and losing everything. and he kind of looks nerdy as if that's possible. So it could have been better, but allowing it was what it was fiction, I enjoyed it.
