| Monty Python in Swedish
The Swedish comedy group Galenskaparna och Aftershave("Madnessmakers" and Aftershave) have just as Monty Python for BBC been making sketch comedy series for Swedish TV as well as live shows, and just as absurd and surreal as their British inspirators. Sadly only one full scale film has come from the swedes. Still, it's better than nothing, very much so. The film LEIF would be an anti war cult film if it wasn't Swedish. It definitely is meant a big kick in the face to the blooming Swedish weapons industry, as it in an obvious parody of arms sales, small town and international politics, together with warfare in general. The parody of this and the Swedish small town society is perhaps overdone and the identity crises of the main character is quite silly, but it doesn't matter. All in all it's a hilarious plot with some sequences so funny that only the Pythons are able to match it. The style with making sketch scenes within the big plot works here, and are surely very laughable. The funniest ever canteen fighting scene is a top moment, together with the idea of making dance bands on an assembly line. This is very mad humor but with a serious political statement as an undertone. See it !!!
