A voyage of softly sweet, madly charming romance
As a Swede I often avoid seeing movies made by Swedes. Because usually
Swedish filmmakers cant refrain from copycatting old, boring and
uninspiring Hollywood clichés. But this time thanks to a friend of mine
I was taken on a beautiful voyage. A voyage of softly sweet, madly
charming romance. If I wanted any movie from Sweden that is made after
the year 2000 be shown worldwide this would be a perfect candidate.
This movie is poetic in its scene/location selections as well as in its
storyline. The beat is slow but ever so captivating. It enchants the
viewer right from the start, making you sadly wanting to remember or
forget your own past, just to relive what seems so familiar and nicely
put in the movie about love, desire and hope.
