Wonderfully true on so many levels
5 April 2010 | by gittan_granSee all my reviews

Both Pernilla and the boys (Ludwig Palmell and Huang Ho) deliver great performances, all well written characters - likable and unable to lika all at the same time. Kicki takes her long lost son on a "vacation" trip toTaiwan, not at all telling him her agenda; they both discover themselves and each other and try to figure out how to fit into their relation, and trying to create a relation. Huang Ho and Eric Tsang, are each others reflections on what the swedes find in Taiwan; the portrayal of the Swedish as well as the Taiwaneese culture strikes us as multi faceted as the characters. A film as many people as possible have to see.
