Chalk and cheese brothers seem fated to remain forever single in this airy, lightweight romantic comedy from Swedish director Maximilian Hult. Óskar (Björn Thors) couldn’t recognise romance if it was tattooed in blood on his heart or spelled out in fireworks. Maggi (Jóel Sæmundsson) believes that every fleeting encounter could be his happy ever after soulmate. One tries much too hard, the other doesn’t try nearly enough. Their quest for romance is the basis of an enjoyable confection filled with wry insight into love, pain and the whole complex business of being human.
