Good intentions...
23 November 2019 | by drevemarkSee all my reviews

...but poor storytelling. Could instead have been made to a rather nice lets say 45 minutes long documentary. Starts ok, you get to know Köping. Ends just fine. But in between. Holy moly. Quiet disastreous. Synd på rara ärter. Svensk filmindustri...
