Onskas Details


In this tranquil comedy, Kring Bosse (Rolf Lassgard) is trying to move up in life, and actually has a lot of confidence about that, despite the fact that he's in his forties and hasn't done all that well. When he answers an ad for a job way up in the north of Sweden, he is sure of two things: he will get the job, and it will be the stepping-stone to success. He commits himself to the project, and is accepted sight unseen as the resort boarding house's new maitre d'. He takes his sharp-as-a-tack new girlfriend Anita (Marie Richardson) with him as he goes to settle in, which is nice enough, but he is also forced to take his own son from a prior marriage, and his girlfriend's two children. When he gets there, he finds that the place is a dump, and the prospects for earnings are poor. Undaunted, he soon hears that a big new highway will be going in not far away and envisions that this dump will become a lively resort spot. While he's making plans to try and buy it, the boarding house's owner is making plans to burn it down and take the insurance money, when he's not putting the make on Kring's girlfriend, who is flexible that way. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
