Enjoyable, bouncy little romantic comedy
21 January 2007 | by varga2122See all my reviews

Echoing another poster here, don't listen to the naysayers on this one.

Fröken Sverige is a fun little movie. Won't make you laugh out loud, won't make you cry, but will certainly charm you.

It's about Moa, who's 19, works in a toilet paper factory, lives in a small house with low ceilings in the country and is trying, comically, to find herself. She's a bit of a shlub, her friends - a small group of vegans/band members/protesters who all live in the city - care for her but don't terribly respect her much. Meanwhile, the drummer of the band, whom she has a crush on, treats her like yesterday's trash and she keeps coming back for more - until one day, that is.

It's mostly a story about how she, with a couple of new friends on her side, finds herself, gains confidence and gets control of her life.

I loved this film. It's enjoyable, light and bouncy, in a "Singles" sort of way. Alexandra Dahlstrom - well, she carries the film and you just plain fall in love with her (if you haven't already from "Show Me Love"). She's a particular kind of star. Diminutive with a cute crook to her smile and eyes that speak volumes, she's certainly got a presence on screen. Also, with her tiny legs, she's got a interesting, funny run as well.

A deep and brooding film? No. Life affirming? Not really. But who cares. Sometimes it's just enough to be entertaining, fun and charming - and Froken Sverige certainly is. Lastly, the soundtrack is just great - particularly the tracks from Melpo Mene.
