sweedish filmcraftmanship at its best.
18 July 2019 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

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 .
