A heartwarming film

As other people have pointed out here, the book gives you more layers and background information and the film would probably work best if you read the book first, that way, you will be able to understand what's going on much better. The acting was wonderful, the casting spot on. The children were delightful and not over the top. So many aspects of the book had to be stripped out in order for a relatively linear story to survive and make sense in just 97 minutes. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the film immensely, watching it in Swedish with subtitles. The way the Swedes talk to each other, e.g. very simple, bare, stripped down reactions, underlines the emotional intensity. They might not say much, but there's a lot bubbling inside them - and this would be better understood if one had read the book first. Throughout the film, I was rooting for Britt-Marie. I adore films where repressed and downtrodden characters slowly unfold - like a chrysalis turning into a butterfly. What I would like to read now is a book called "What Britt-Marie Did Next". I feel there is more potential in that character.

This is what we in Swedish would call a "magplask" - big time. How could so many good forces add so little?

I liked the book better.

Liked the book better. This happens to most of the titles that's based on the book. But still... not bad. Would have been better if I could get a chance to watch it on the wider screen.
