This mischievous, uplifting film from the Berlinale’s Official Competition is a black comedy about a vivacious sixty-eight-year-old retiree. After years of carousing and adventuring around the world, Nojet returns to Stockholm following the death of her father from whom she inherits a large apartment building. Much to her surprise, she discovers that the tenants on the seventh floor are black-market crooks. She has two options: sell, or keep it, crooks included. But Nojet is not one to avoid a challenge and declares war against the criminals who exploit the city’s housing crisis. Co-directors Måns Månsson and Axel Petersén’s bold comedy is a witty social critique with invigorating flare.
