Comedy in darkness and light
This is Swedish director Maria Blom's second movie. The first one was "Masdjävlar" a promising debut. The follow-up is a little weaker.

It's about the air hostess (Sofia Helin) from a dysfunctional family, who finds a somewhat dysfunctional boyfriend with a 5-year-old son. Her relation with her mother, acted with total presence by Gunilla Nyroos, is a matter of tolerance and laughter and black understreams.

The interaction with the brother, brilliant played by Sven Ahlström, is both comforting and a little destructive, but all the time on the right side of the border. There are depths here that could have been more penetrated, and that makes the movie all right, but not more than so.
