This is nominated for Oscar's Best Foreign Language Film. I enjoyed it - loved the character and the journey from isolation to interdependence to community. I give it a 9 (truly great) out of 10. They call it a comedy/drama, but the humour is from the everyday absurdity of human nature and how we live out life (or try to escape it). Great nomination, and, for me, this sets the bar as the one to beat in this category of the Oscar, but, I still have the other four nominees to see, and _The Salesman_ seems to be the front runner for the critics.

Really fucking good. I don't watch swedish movies very often(even though I am swedish), but when I do, THIS is what I want to see. I'd recommend it to anyone.

This was a very nice movie adaptation of a very amazing book, which succeeded to give back a lot of the source material. Still, I recommend reading the book first, if you have the chance, since - especially near the ending - the movie felt a bit rushed, and it definitely makes this movie more enjoyable if you know all the details. Either way don't let the synopsis fool you, this one is a very emotional movie with lots of laughter and tears both. Well done, Sweden!

This is of course the original Swedish version of this film, soon to be joined for posterity by a U.S. version featuring Tom Hanks. The comparison between the two productions should prove to be interesting.

I actually enjoyed the movie a bit more than I did the book. Perhaps it is because I write More

The life after the loved one departed.

This is a Swedish film based on the book of the same name. It is sent to represent the nation at the 2017 Oscars and as for now, it made into the December shortlist. This is the tale of an old grumpy man and the life after the death of his wife. That would b More
