A Swedish production hits the sweet spot.
Josephine Bornebusch elegantly meshes humour with a serious approach to relationships. At times she even touches the complexity of being.
The dry, somewhat sarcastic, humour allows the audience laugh with, rather than at, the characters.
Alska Mig is not a great work of art - but it is skilful craftsmanship and it leaves the impression that Bornebusch may have greatness lurking somewhere in her future.
However, there is an elephant in the room and it has to do with casting. If you can enjoy a film entirely on its own merit; Alska Mig delivers solid value for time spent. If you hold the belief that every filmmaker has a duty beyond the frames, you may develop an itch that is very hard to scratch: The, almost total, lack of ethnic diversity makes little sense and does leave a gnawing question - why?
