A week before Christmas, Estelle lands at Arlanda Airport. A year earlier, she had left Stockholm on the run with her husband Tommy and their daughter, after Tommy had taken part in one of the biggest robberies ever in the history of Swedish crime. Estelle seeks out Tommy's former cronies and claims that Tommy is on his way home. And he wants his share of the take. Word spreads like wildfire through Stockholm's underworld. If Tommy returns, the city will explode. And if he doesn't ... something even worse might happen. TOMMY is the story of the woman behind the man behind the headlines. A modern myth about when the Queen returned and the city burned. About two sisters, two mothers, three daughters and their men.Written by
Estelle has returned home from a sojourn in Sri Lanka. She has been there since her husband did a runner after pulling off one of the biggest robberies in Swedish history. This husband is Tommy and it soon becomes obvious that his reputation precedes him and the mere mention of his name instills fear into those who may have crossed him.
The thing is he never got the money out and he now wants it back - that is why Estelle has come for it. The elephant in the room is why has Tommy not come himself? Estelle tells everyone he is on his way, but things start to unravel as parts of the past come back up to haunt all those involved.
This is stylish production Moa Gammel as Estelle often looks like she is in an Abba video with her high cheekbones and effortless blond hair, but she puts in a stunning performance too. She is ably supported by Swedish pop songstress Lykke Li, who is very talented and puts on a brilliant live show she actually performs one song in the film - Du Är Den Ende. No one puts in a bad performance but Ola Rapace as the conniving Bobby should get a special mention for a sterling effort. There are enough twists to keep you on the edge of your seat a 9 out of 10 film that I am rounding up to 5 stars because I enjoyed it so much
