Originally saw this in the cinemas when it came out and I didnt really like it. After this rewatch I can definetly say that it has grown on me quite a bit.
The film has some laughable moments in it, the dad is funny because I can relate to him in some aspects, but the film is still pretty bad just as I remembered when I saw it back in 2010.
Even though I laughed plenty of times I still cant say that this drama-comedy worked that well.
An okay movie with some good messages about class distinctions, forbidden love and prejudice. I really liked the scene where Wojtek paints Anneli’s parents house and the mother invites him over to celebrate Anneli by eating some cake with their family. She feels like he deserves a break from his hard work but I got the feeling that she is ignorant to his conditions. The fact that rich countries abuse the bad or even terrible conditions people of poorer countries have is something this movie showcases well.

The best way to describe this film is by quoting an iconic movie reviewer here on letterboxd:
”A lot of people think it’s iconic, calm down it’s good but not legendary”
