Metin is a young man living in a Stockholm suburb governed by unwritten rules. He is different, he writes a diary of everything he sees, names and places are documented in great detail. When the book disappears his life is turned upside down. Ivica Zubak blends humor and gravity in a story about seizing life's opportunities.
During a Q&A at the International Film Festival Rotterdam director Ivica Zubak told the audience he worked on the script from november 2012 until december 2015 with actor David Nzinga. All of the research Zubak did for the script came from the actor's life experiences growing up in a bad neighborhood. See more »
I fell into this flick with an expectation of a'' f...in åmål'' or ''kopps'', but i missed the target , but ended up with so much more.
its a film about sweedish suburbia, the sweedish ethnic gettoes suburbia, in fact the ciminal parts of sweedish ethnic ghetto suburbia. its about a man with a hidden talent for petty crimesd and being a diary writer. he has a dream to become an actor and comes to an audition. throwing of his jacket, with the diary in the inner pocket, it fells out and when the man leaves he doesnt notice that till its too late. one of the casters had seen the book and sees a great talent in whats written there. the book though contains names and numbers of his criminal mates and their deeds, and the main story is the telling about a desperate fight to get that book back....
its a brilliant story, it make you feel so uncertain all the way through, the acting and the harsh language used is nailed into you with an unbelievable force.
the grumpy old man are gobsmacked and can just recommend .
