Not the same as the book
28 July 2018 | by vskfanzSee all my reviews

Film based from the book with the same name. A true (tragic) lifestory of Hasse P. Good acting by Persbrandt and Lindström Bolmgren who has the correct swedish accent for the specific area. The film was good but not better than the book. The book has a way better ending a couple of months after the world record which you cannot predict. Also I think the book has more comedy and tons of more details than the film. Overall a good job especially with 80's feel and nostalgia.
