Sommermond is simple and pleasant comedy.On one side we have the couple Erik Larsson and Lilli who are fighting but also making peace, and fighting again.Erik is a text writer and he is failing to Svea, the deputy editor who needs his text for publishing a good pictures book.On the other side we have Svea and Erik's friend Anders.Then Svea decides to travel to the island to see what happens with Erik. His friend Anders is in charge of detaining Svea with a big lie (a scarlet fiever), but Svea doesn't believe it and finally manages to see Erik. She will stay one night on the island waiting for the texts.Then begins this encounter between Anders and Svea: he offers her to stay in a small cabin near the sea.They are quite different, she is totally workaholic, after the tragic of her husband and her daughter,she has dedicated her life to the the editorial of her father-in-law.Anders ha also suffered, his wife went away and he tries to educate the best way his son Linus.Little by little they will understand and appreciate each other.
I enjoyed the performances of Nina Bott (Svea) and Hendrik Duryn (Anders) very much.
