My absolute favourite swedish movie - yep, even more so than anything by Bergman. Even though much of the comedy could only be understood by swedes, I truly recommend it to all. The speed and style is great, but above all stands the characters which is the main focus in the movie - and rightly so.

Fun Swedish dark comedy/mystery. Good stuff. I enjoyed this one far more than "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo".

A wonderful narration of the Swedish "Vrmland". A true swedish comedy from Ulf Malmros when it's unexcelled

A great little Swedish film with excellent performances by a cast of oddball characters that might have been plucked from Roy Andersson's Songs from the Second Floor while, at the same time, given a dime-store novel twist. Malmros's direction is really smart -- e.g, the driving scenes, the flashbacks within flashbacks, great (and sometimes quick) editing, etc. -- and displays a debt to independent cinema, the Dogma 95 tradition, and figures like Tarantino, Ritchie, and Anciano. All of these elements combine to create a fun, bizarre, creative, and darkly humorous film.

Sweedish comedy gold. It was funny, pretty, and fast paced. This Twin Peakish little Sweedish, town full of oddballs; manic depressive police chiefs, amateur film makers, drug addicts, giants, etc, yields up a murder and conspiracy. Well worn territory, but never worn so well as here. Perspectives and chronology jump around as with Ritche and Tarantino, who are being subtly parodied, however this is, as much if not more, of a film about the contradictory impulses involved in "going home" than it is, a tour through small town's underbelly. The soundtrack is mostly bouncing indie pop, which helps keep interest during the camera's many first person drives through the city. I haven't been as pleasantly surprised by a comedy like this in a long time. Anyone interested in a fun, hip, whimsical, and inventive good time, see here.

If you like foreign films than you will love this movie. It's funny and rather disturbing all at the same time. There is never a dull moment.

This is now on Netflix watch instantly if anyone has access to that. On rewatch it seems a very personal film from Malmros, about bieng from a small town, and how alien it can seem on going home, watching your freinds and loved ones, who become or appear now freakish by comparison to your "new life". But still feeling a combination of guilt and nostalgia towards those you left behind. More important than the small time drug ring, are the little flash back moments about wanting to live in a place with a movie theater,that doesnt breakdown halfway into a movie because they never recieved the final reel, leaving only the theater manager to call a freind on his cell phone in front of a packed theater and ask him how "Pulp Fiction" ended. "Everything works out well for the negro, but Travolta dies comming out of the toilet"( a scene which Malmros claimed actually happened and convinced him to move away).

Also I was now able to pick up more of the film references that the film junkie named Grits is always making, like forgetting to play his role in the "heist" because he was too absorbed by some 9 hour Polish film called "The Catalog". Ultimately it is much more scincere and stylish than "Garden State" and with much better music. Most importantly it still makes me laugh out loud.

An extremely funny Swedish movie! The story is about a young man returning to his hometown after miserably failing in the big city. When he arrives there to find his missing sister, he is drawn in to the rather bizarre lives of the people living there. A really great movie! (My favorite is the guy with the stapler gun. You'll understand when you see it!)

Sort of a Swedish Pulp Fiction with a smidge of Trainspotting.
