| Best Swedish film 1999!
Celebrating Christmas today isn´t really how it used to be (or how it supposed to be). Divorces are more usual, which make a completely different view on the family.

Sara (Katarina Ewerlöf) invites her ex husbands and their wives and children to celebrate Christmas at her house with her husband Janne (Peter Haber). While eating dinner, she tells everyone, that she´s pregnant again, but Janne has been sterilized without her knowledge. Who is the father of the baby?

Director Kjell Sundvall made a great effort with his 1996 hit Jägarna, and I knew that there were some good actors in the film, but I can´t really say that my expectations were great, since many Swedish films aren´t good. Fortunately, I was totally wrong!

The script by Monika Rolfner is witty and really catches the family situation of today. This along with really good actors (enjoyable to see Alexandra Dahlström again, who hasn´t done a bad movie so far) with a wonderful timing with the funny comments makes this film to be a real treat to watch. Only the cinematography wasn´t that good, but I strongly recommend this comedy if you´re looking for a big laugh! Rating: 7/10
