Great film from Sweden!
27 November 2006 | by sartor023See all my reviews

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this film. Great acting and writing and directing!

All of the characters were well fleshed out, and fun to 'live' with on screen. Moving and touching at times, and funny and good witted at others..

It's such a treat to see what's happening in other countries film wise! I tend to think Hollywood no longer has the last word on film anymore! Many other writers/directors/actors in many other countries are constantly coming out with engaging and fun movies! I so enjoy to see other parts of the world and their homes and culture...

Great film making!
