    Olof's car is a Buick, not a Volvo!!
    a Volvo? are you serious? How could you mistake a Buick --- a 1940's vintage Buick, it's big as a house --- for a -- a --- a Volvo?
    Tell the readers that the movie is a feast of beautiful old cars (it's set in the Fifties, after all), all shined up like a dime-store cowboy -- Erik's 55 Ford convertible, top down; Olof's Buick; a 54 Ford Victoria; and a cameo appearance by what must surely be the world's oldest Volvo, maybe even a five cylinder one. Mint condition. Let's hope some Swede writes in and tells us just what model that lovely old green Volvo is in fact.

    Oh by the way Under Solen is a really good movie and nobody should miss it. Hollywood movies suck, generally; and Swedish movies are depressing and slow, by and large, but certainly don't suck like hollywood movies; and Under Solen is just a very very very good movie. Yes, definitely, not to be missed. Poof Olof. His long suffereing dog, Ozzi. And that woman is not so unusual, she is a nice woman and she does all the right things, almost, and in the end, yes, she follows her heart. It's so sweet, but it wasn't easy.
