Description

Best of Fest Encores

The sleeper hit of Swedish cinema in 2020 and the winner of the Gold Bug for the country’s best feature, this appealing autobiographical dramedy weaves together scenes of the eponymous protagonist’s everyday life with humorous music he composes and sings.

Uje is Uje Brandelius, a very-involved father and husband, radio host and keyboard player for the pop band Doktor Kosmos. Uje and his family (all played by themselves) live an apparently harmonious and ordinary life in the Stockholm suburb of Bredäng (the subject of one of the film’s running jokes). Family dinners, homework, negotiation on drop-offs to kindergarten, and his daughter’s chess and fencing training are their main concerns. But one day, Uje learns that he has a serious illness. Faced with this crisis, he first keeps it secret, while seeking out people and situations he otherwise wouldn’t, leading to comical results. (Alissa Simon)
