Probably the best swedish movie I've ever seen
14 November 2020 | by mackanenquistSee all my reviews

This movie is completely mindblowing. Swedish movie culture is most often depressingly bad, but this movie is created with a sence of hollywood quality, without losing the essence of a small swedish society.

Growing up in a small village in Sweden myself, I can really say that this is true to life. It's a fascinating culture, with people doing such dumb stuff all the time and becoming local celebrities for it.

I've watched this movie about 5 or 6 times already, and it still brings me to tears each time.
