The Swedish unemployment has reached the criminal realms. We meet characters that have to fight for their lives in order to finish their work shift in one piece. An action satire of the Swedish labor market.
In this true crime satirical mockumentary, investigative journalist Hannah McMann attempts to solve a horrific crime committed by Sophia Noonan. The crime? She refuses a marriage proposal from her long-time boyfriend, Shawn.
A group of posh young men in a restaurant end up in a fight over who is the richest, which they try to demonstrate by wasting and destroying as expensive things as possible. The situation quickly derails.
During the Finnish-Russian war in the winter of 1940. On Måsön in the Swedish archipelago lives the romantic and idealist ringer Albin Olsson and the young beautiful and passionate teacher Eva Andersson.
In 1904 an earthquake of magnitude 5.4 on the Richter scale shook Oslo, with an epicenter in the "Oslo Graben" which runs under the Norwegian capital. There are now signs that indicate that we can expect a major future earthquake in Oslo.
The story revolve around five couples of different generations. Their lives are woven together by coincidences but sometimes through very deliberate choices where the common driving force is the search for love.
Helena Af Sandeberg,
I didn't know what to expect when I went to see the movie. I had barely seen the trailer and the visit to the cinema was really spontaneous.
During the very first section of the movie I was getting nervous that the movie was going to disappoint me. It's very slow-paced for quite some time in the beginning. But when the story takes a turn I started to appreciate the slow setup. It's a development of a great story with just the right amount of context at the moment chaos unleashes. Something I don't think we would have seen if it were a Hollywood production (where it's all about getting to the action ASAP).
And then comes the turning point in the story. Chaos is unleashed on little Sweden, all elements in the movie (story, visuals, audio, VFX etc.) just creates this amazing experience. Progression is done in such a beautiful manner, great pacing not to fast not to slow.
When the movie ended I just wanted to see it again, right away (something that happens very rarely). I'm sitting tight for another chance to see it because the movie is totally worth it!
A big thank you to the creators for this experience!
