As It is In Heaven or Så som i himmelen

Paul Byrnes ..smh movie reviewer... says of this movie "This is one of the best things to come out of Sweden since Abba". Hmm I don't know about that, but it is a fabulous movie. We went yesterday along with most of Sydney, it being a cold and very wet Anzac Day afternoon. It's a movie very reminiscent of " Italian for beginners", if you saw that, however it's much more gritty than romance. The protagonist is a most unattractive bloke whose hair is in dire need of a shampoo, comb and cut, but who nevertheless just exudes charisma and the romantic interest (Frida someone) is just gorgeous. The cast does a fabulous job of portraying the angst and repressions in their respective lives and scenery is gorgeous - set in Northern Sweden somewhere - there's shitloads of snow!! (now I know what your skiing place was like Chris).
So it can go on my list of "best things to come out of Sweden" along with:
cheese slicers
Advent candle thingies
Elderberry flower cordial
Ginger snaps
Go and see it if you get a chance's a great movie. I loved it.!!!
