Movie Info

A gay couple, Goran (Gustaf Skarsgård) and Sven (Torkel Petersson), want to adopt. But through a mistake on the adoption papers, they receive not a 1.5-year-old child, but a 15-year-old delinquent, Patrik (Thomas Ljungman), who happens to be homophobic. With the agency unable to fix things for at least a week, the couple is forced to deal with Patrik's belief that all homosexuals are pedophiles. As Goran and Sven's relationship grows strained, all three learn something important from each other.

    A sensitive and heartwarming drama that could have been easily filled with clichés and turned into a melodrama but is wise instead to develop its story in an always believable and sincere way, relying also on two adorable performances by Skarsgård and Ljungman.

    Very good movie! This surprisingly sweet and touching movie will be overlooked by the majority of viewers simply because it is a gay themed movie. Not quite a comedy, and a tad darker than a drama, this sweet Swedish movie touched my heart - and it has a happy ending, to boot.

    I'd say this is a good movie in spite of the fact that it really romanticizes the whole gay adoption debate, even though there really shouldn't be and the bigotry that homosexuals generally have to face from people who choose to bully them or try ostracize them from society as if they were immoral or not worthy of the same basic rights all humans should have. Granted the main characters do face some discrimination, in fact the whole movie is pretty much centered around it, but it's done in a neat fashion. I can't really blame them since the movie, in the end, ended up being a very sweet and optimistic story about how people change without really dwelling too much on the more serious aspects of the film. I can understand that choice, I think it certainly makes the movie infinitely more watchable to a casual audience. And the movie does have some strong performances from its leads. The obvious highlight being Gustaf Skarsgard (Goran) and Tom Jjungman (Patrik). Gustaf is incredibly likable and he brings that to his character and even Tom Ljungman also brings a likability to his character, because you do get to know him and know that he's not really bad, just a victim of bad situations. And Torkel Petersson does a good job as well, but the movie is really about Gustaf and Tom. You root for these characters. But the movie is predictable, I'm not gonna deny that but I don't think it really hinders the movie that much. I'd rather a movie be predictable and make sense than be unpredictable and have absolutely no idea what's going on. So really, I think I liked this movie more than the rating lets on, but it is quite good. It's not perfect, it isn't as funny as it should be, nor does it go as deep into the complexity of a very real debate, but it is an entertaining and sweet story with some good performances from all involved.

    Sweet and slightly melancholy Swedish film about a gay couple whose adoption of a supposed infant brings them a troubled 15 year old is both as simple as it sounds and not so much. Hugely aided by the happy/sad central performance of its lead, it doesn't so much tug at the heart as sadly poke at it. There's a too-easy third act turn that calls all the proceedings into question, but the whole enterprise is redeemed by a last scene that makes it all OK. A nice mug-of-hot-chocolate-on-a-snowy-day kind of movie.
