Olle Sarri, who plays the main character, was not allowed to read the script before filming. The movie was shot in chronological order, with Sarri coming to the set every day without having the slightest idea what was going to happen.

I was in a mood for a weird movie when I went to see this one. What really disappointed me is that it's mostly just very realistic and slightly depressing.
Very little happens in the movie. It could have ended after 40 minutes and it wouldn't have changed the totality much at all. It wasn't exactly bad in the way that you get angry because it's stupid or anything like that but there really isn't any sense of a story unfolding.
I think it's a film that it OK to have seen but I didn't enjoy the experience very much. Don't watch it unless you want to see something made by film people for film people.
