I love this film!
When I sat down to watch this movie I was rather depressed. "Den bästa sommaren" changed that.
Wonderful film about two orphans spending their summer holidays together in late 50s Swedish countryside. Their "father" for the summer is a seemingly square and restrained coroner, struggling for self-respect and gaining respect from others. With the 1958 soccer World Cup (which was held in Sweden) as a background, the three of them, and the kids' teacher, find their lives changing - for the better.
Great acting, wonderful photo, good timing and a story that will make your day brighter too. 10/10.
