European Light Comedy with Style

The chaotic protagonist Bella - an actress at heart age of 20 in the body of a 40-year woman - stumbles literally, through life, or from casting to casting. She envies her best friend who has a glittering career, the perfect husband and an adorable child until one day the Royal Theatre calls. Bella lied in her CV about her acrobatic skills, but this is why the Royal Theatre wants her to play a leading role in the new Ingmar Bergmann production. And beside all her professional problems there is also this little thing called love...

Some critics say the movie is like Bridget Jones in Swedish and they're right. But still it has its own style. Director Hannes Holm created Sweden's own version of Miss Jones and the character is working very well. She is surprising, funny, brave and crazy at the same time and this is why the audience loves Bella. If you're looking for an interesting story with funny scenes, charming actors and nice shots from Sweden and Austria you shouldn't miss it.
