There's still hope
26 February 2012 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

According to reports, the behavior of Swedish nouveau riches in Båstad is out of this world and makes their American and even Russian counterparts seem cultivated. In this environment 60+ Janne starts a nightclub.

He's used to his emptiness and doesn't think much about it. This is what life is to him and it always has. Until something happens which forces him to think and feel. And the world is sinking for both Janne and his co-workers. Life is not a draw at all; it is a terrible loss and it obviously has always been.

This is a shaking story and Johannes Brost and Peter Carlberg are great, but tremendous is Léonore Ekstrand. This is a script with no hope, but a film by Axel Petersén, which is part of a higher quality for Swedish movies during this last year.
