Britt-Marie, 63 years old, has just left a 40 year old marriage and her long life as a house wife. Being told she is a nagging passive aggressive aunt, the new, only job, in small town Borg, will be quite challenging. Small town of Borg has no pride left except the young soccer team and Britt-Marie's new job is to coach them. This is the start of a journey filled with not only struggles and challenges, but also warmth and love.Written by
Some of the scenes are filmed in a small location called Lödöse, four Miles outsider Gothenburg. See more »
No spy's, no guns no Superwoman
A very enjoyable movie that I was reluctant to watch. After wading through 762 pages of the book that seemed to have been written for prisoners on death row that had no escape, the movie was a breath of fresh air. It certainly was not Mary Poppins were every 12 seconds you were hit over the head with goodness. The movie expected more from you. If you melded at all with Britt-Marie and began to see who she was, a look of helplessness on her face told more that a 15 page explanation in the book. After loosing her sister who was the only person who she shared dreams with and never being able to find that again she stopped dreaming. And after a while you forget to look. Then if you are lucky you realize that maybe you can dream again.
