For the last few months i've stumbled upon quite a few Swedish movies, and for me, personally, it's a grand discovery!
I love and appreciate low budget movies. For me, producing more with less always seemed an outcome of cinematic expertise.
That kind of Minimalism makes this movie great.
The themes and situations displayed in this movie are so relatable, and i bet you'll find your self giggling (for a wide Spectrum of reasons: from sympathy to embarrassment).
It's light and have a natural flow, the acting is very authentic and sensitive.
The script is superb, and the camerawork also contributes to the "Ostlund experience", together forming an honourable picture.
