Seemingly impossible plot to turn into a good story, yet it worked out very well after all. Many unexpected turns of events. Ample humor as icing on the cake
22 August 2017 | by JvH48See all my reviews

Saw this at the Rotterdam Film Festival 2017 (website: https://iffr.com/en). After having read the synopsis on both the festival website as well as the distributors website (see: http://mastegitt.indiansummerfilm.se), I assumed the plot to be far-fetched and next to impossible to make a good story out of it. I was wrong with this a-priori assumption and I stand corrected.

The story develops very well, and unexpected turns of events are coming one by one. And as soon as you think that all possible surprises are exhausted, there is another one you did not see coming. Keeps your attention all the time, with a lot of humor as icing on the cake. Small but beautiful and useful roles of the father (seen a few times in flash-backs) and the mother (having an important effect at a pivotal moment), all of them having their logical place in the dramatic developments. Still more important are the fundamental laws of the street, where trust is of utmost importance and betrayal is severely punished.

Though not having won the VPRO Big Screen Award for which it was nominated by the Rotterdam film festival, it scored relatively high for the audience award, getting a deservedly 13th place (out of 172) with an average score of 4.322 (out of 5).
