Another Swedish film that I enjoyed a lot... go figure.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
I just finished watching this movie and at the very end I kept asking myself what it was all about. Like in My Life As A Dog I couldn't really spot a compelling storyline theme that'd appeal to me. It's just the boy and his way of managing his life. Interesting flick if you enjoy such socio-cultural depictions, but too little for me as I long for continuous storyline and character development rather than snapshots.My Movie Rating: 5 / 10
