Storyline

The Swedish summer is on and Göran, recently dumped by his girlfriend, is searching for the woman of his dreams. Göran is not altogether in harmony with himself or his work situation and is trying a little bit too hard to please everyone around him. Unlike his best friend however, he is not prepared to compromise with love and settle for the less than perfect girl. In pursuit of love he sails out to a Midsummer party in the seductive Swedish archipelago. Unexpected love lurks in the bright Swedish summer's night ready to rock the raft of romance. Comedy and romance are the main ingredients when a story unfolds about young urban self conscious people in a high society setting. Written by Stella Nova Film

Somewhat interesting for understanding the difficulties of movie-making
11 April 2010 | by tullmejs-710-311583See all my reviews

I think this movie would be suitable in film related classes. There are so many flaws yet also a lot of signs of quality. I think it above all tries to be too much at once. Also, the director's experience in TV humour work is evident in the way the movie often seems to be put together from several snippets.

It is funny here and there, in short flashes surprisingly so. But then there are the romantic scenes, decidedly less expertly crafted. And again, the two doesn't get along very seamlessly. A few characters are funny, or might have been, but here too their presence highlights the split un-whole general feel.
