| Disappointing from otherwise great Swedish producer-and-actor duo
I usually love the movies and TV series by the famous Swedish duo Holm and Herngren. They usually capture the essence of modern Sweden, they deal with current issues, and you can relate a lot to the characters - especially if you are around the same age. So, as I am myself a divorced mother with my children "varannan vecka" (every other week), I ought to be able to recognize a lot in this movie - I believed.

...and I recognized a little: the every other week with your children, when you live the life of a parent and working mother, and the other week when you can live like a single girl again if you want to. Or at least you can try... many of us find that time has passed, and that we have changed too much through marriage, child-birth and the responsibility of being a parent, to fit into the careless club-scene again...

So, I think it was basically a good idea to make a movie about divorced parents, and their attempts to find their youth again during their child-free weeks. New partners, jealousy about your old partner's new partner, attempts to get a sibling for your child if you have only one from the marriage...

BUT the above was not enough for a whole movie! It soon became repetitive and predictable. What was lacking was a strong story line, with the every other week-life only as a foil that people could relate to. I think this movie was mostly mixed-up, slow, boring and meaningless.

Another thing: Felix Herngren is ALWAYS playing the same character really - only with different names in different productions. The shy, insecure, indecisive, hen-pecked male. In this movie he had tried to change his appearance a little by wearing his hair long, but it did not help at all - it became only silly. I wish he could either stop acting, or try another type of role altogether!
