So ambitious or too ambitious
21 July 2010 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

You can call this Swedish drama an episode movie with an uneven script. It tries to show racial prejudices in a Sweden which is supposed to be relatively clean from it. These affect private lives, professional lives and they also make people's lives unhappy. And it all takes place in one day.

The problem here is the overacting, which is performed by everybody except Peter Gardinger. This mostly means that the director doesn't trust his script. People act in the most un-Swedish way, when they don't act according to...that's right...common prejudices about this country.

What is supposed to be a drama, turns out into almost slapstick. And the probably good intentions aren't fulfilled.
