– Press Clippings –
“In "Sune - Best Man" a boy has to decide whether to go on a school trip because of love or to his grandfather's wedding. The Swedish family film combines weird humor with an encouraging statement about more individuality, which is just as sympathetic as the chaotic troop themselves.”
“A film that is filled to the brim with soul, heart and lots of humor. Everything flutters in this film, which was superbly written and directed by Jon Holmberg, who also directed the previous Sune film. The actors are in their element and Fredrik Hallgren is once again really good in the role of Sune's father Rudolf. But here there is a click between anything and everyone and the humor is flawless and accurate.”
“The mood is good and contagious. Director and screenwriter Jon Holmberg, who made Sune vs Sune, also plays here with action clichés, peppers with ironic winks to genre films, and offers a lot of quick twists.
“Best Sune movie to date! This is truly an incredibly fun and heartwarming movie for the whole family. It is very well played overall and like a little more mature between laps. "Sune - Best Man" offers both drastic and quite emotional moments, which is why me and my children loved it!
