It's a first feature from a young director, and still has a bit of film-school gawkiness about it. But there's talent here, and probably better films to come.

A warm, sweet Swedish romantic comedy about culture shock in Scandanavia.

Or, as more than a few IMDB reviewers have hinted: My Big Fat Swedish Wedding.

Unlike many broad comedies, Jalla! Jalla! has real affection for its characters and that makes it a winner.

A warm and funny buddy movie about relationships, sex and weddings - in that order. The performances are wonderful, and are played as straight as an arrow.

While the meandering story is coherently told, it labours under a dual storyline that tells completely different stories until they're tied together fairly unconvincingly at the end.

Full of some great physical comedy work from Torkel Petersson

April 26, 2002
Planet Sick-Boy

Fares' debut combines rude energy and often ruder humour in a tale of culture clashes and sexual crises that's none too profound, but still good fun.
