A wonderful film!
19 October 2010 | by asa-874-349484See all my reviews

This is a wonderful film, well produced, wonderfully directed and fantastically acted! It follows several individuals as they struggle to get through what quickly turns out to be a nightmare of a day and it does so with great sensitivity and a good portion of dark humor. An intricately woven fabric of human experience and a must see for those of us who feel deep love for our fellow man/woman and enjoy art that speaks to us in that vein. In fact, most of Swedish press raved about the film upon release while it often seems to touch a sore nerve by including subjects of racism, ageism, misogyny and general ignorance during a period of hardening climate in Swedish society (as witnessed by racist party being elected into government) and attracts more than it's share of slightly murky "reviews" in various more or less anonymous internet forums. A shame since this might cause some to miss a great film.
