unresolved, which can be seen as irritating or true – not in the book anyway

life as one big con game – maybe in my book

warm, nostalgic, entertaining homage – far too conventional though, not in the book

Long – but not too long – about self-absorbed men and depending women.

Not in the book.

A brilliant intro sequence is followed by some outlandishly ridiculous-looking firemen. They fail miserably at embodying a scary and mind-numbing society devoid of text, keeping its people docile with sports, tv, drugs, and brute force.

Unfortunately there is very little suspension of disbelief, the story is erratic and rhapsodic, behaviour irrational and unbelievable.

Fascinating at times, but mostly clumsy and ridiculous – not in the book.

cold, elaborate, sad – not in the book despite plenty of style and some substance

nicolaskrizan

generation gap comedy with neatly spun web of relations and extremely high ratio of coincidences – funny now and then, but not near the book

maybe not substantial enough for the book, but quite entertaining in its own sullen way

contemporary swedish mainstream entertainment – snappy and often quite funny, a little more weird than expected, not in the book

Three old friends – pathetic casanova, mingy hypochondriac, and recent divorcee – go for a short trip together and of shame, lies, missunnsamhet

Dry, bleak, embarrassing comedy about the misery of failure, age, and disease. More gloomy and depressing than funny. Not in my book of bitter introspection.

Predictable recognition comedy – occasionally funny, often embarrassing, sometimes even cringeworthy.

Too slow, packed with clichés and dubious acting. Not in my book.

flesh and mind – a disturbing look at fucked minds, strained relations, and home made porn

cruel and tender, not in the book

cosy and cute leftist propaganda – competently made but far too conventional for the book

Pregnancy, love, circumstances. The snazzy fifties-styled animated intro is followed by something reasonably contemporary, if not particularly realistic. There's even a little edge towards the end, though not nearly enough for the book.

»Your heart is completely worn out«

The self-consuming genius. The power of music. The biblical allusions.

Strong on life force, conflict, engagement, and emotion. Unfortunately, a lot of all this feels embarrassing, like some clumsy parody.

Maybe in my book after all.
