"Directed by Kjell Sundvall, with Magdalena In de Betou, Peter Magnusson, Katarina Ewerlöf, Johan Ulveson, Ellen Bergström, Adam Pålsson, Dan Ekborg, Ia Langhammer."
"comedy Last collaboration between the screenwriter, Monica Rolfner and director Kjell Sundvall resulted in the ”Santa is father to all the kids” (1999). A black comedy that in many ways defined and accurately joked with the modern-day families with children with divorced parents, parents with new and former partners, all trying to hang out and have a good time with each other, in this case on christmas eve. A movie that has become just julaftonstradition in the TV 4, and every year attracts at least a half a million viewers. A movie where Dan Ekborg had full rein to their ability to four of cynical replies perhaps better than any other. A movie that been remake in Germany."
"High expectations, that is."
"And that, to some extent, be fulfilled."
"When the whole family is gathering at a castle for the wedding, is the tone equally lovely raw, replikskiftena as vulgar and cynical."
"the Hosts (Katarina Ewerlöf, Johan Ulveson) les strained to all guests. We in the audience see a marriage that has gone in to stand for a long time ago."
"The young couple (Adam Pålsson, Ellen Bergström) who is to be married to exude such a excessive kärlekslycka, that something just can't sue."
"Hostess sister (Magdalena In de Betou) and her husband (Peter Magnusson) is the story's ”engine”. The audience can identify with. They are there in protest. Really should they differ, but do not want to spoil the happy occasion by telling it. Her job as a tv cook has risen to her head, he is heartily tired of his job with own målerifirman. Both the actors do a good job with the roles."
"This is a terapeutpar (Dan Ekborg, Ia Langhammer) as most seem to be for Dan Ekborg will again get to act cynic. There is also a – watch and be amazed – happy older couple (Sten Ljunggren, Anita Wall). Here are a number of singles, young people and children, which, once again, most get the spectators to the adult clashes. And that, Suzanne Reuter, theresa russell and Michael Nyqvist up in supporting roles."
"Much to be discussed. The pace is hard. Sometimes it becomes a bit excessive, more vulgar slapstick than accurate everyday realism."
"One might think that the whole thing is pretty sad. I choose to laugh is good for, rather than with, those sad people."
"See also: ”Micke & Veronica” is a little more tidy Swedish kärlekskomedi."
"did you Know that... Kjell Sundvall has even a comedy at the time of the year. ”The priest in paradise” with Kjell Bergqvist in the title role and set in Thailand, has its premiere July 3."
"Just now... you can also see Dan Ekborg in ”Chicago” at the Stockholm city Theatre and Katarina Ewerlöf in the ”Life is a schlager” at Cirkus in Stockholm."
