'Jonas Karlsson', who is Swedish, worked really hard not to speak as a Swedish-speaking Finn (Swedish is an official language in Finland, spoken as a first language by a significant minority of the population), but rather as someone who speaks Finnish as his native language, and has learned Swedish later in life.

Since there are no other reviews I decided to write one :) I am originally from Finland, but I've been living in Finland for soon to be 20 years. This is a great movie full of laughter and emotions with amazing actors. It will first make you laugh, then make you sad and happy in the end.
Me and my wife are both Russians, but we laughed so much during the movie. There are some iconic lines like "Why are you kissing your sister?"...."Because we're in Sweden" and so many others. If I am completely honest it even made me a cry a little bit in the end which is a great achievement for any movie.
Go see it and enjoy great Scandinavian cinema!
