Four More Years is yet another fantastic Swedish flick! The dialogue is witty and the characters behave in ways that I find very comforting. There is a maturity in the interactions that you typically don’t see in American film. I’ll be purposely vague, but when mistakes are made, people roll with them and typically give each other the space to resolve them. The overall story is very heart warming and its comedic tone is a nice compliment to the festival.

Overall Entertainment / Enjoyment: A
Nothing to complain about. The characters were enjoyable and the movie was well put together.

Siff Provided Synopsis:
David Holst has just lost the election he was slated to win. His good looks, political savvy, and humor made him the front-runner for the Prime Minister of Sweden, but his lead in the assumed victory takes a sudden plunge, forcing his defeat. It is during this time of disappointment that he meets Martin in an elevator and falls head over heels in love. Despite his marriage to his closest co-worker, Fia, and his professed heterosexuality, David pursues a relationship with Martin—only to find out that Martin is the Secretary of State for the political party that beat him in the recent election. Four More Years is the second feature film from Swedish actress-turned-director Tova Magnusson-Norling. A bold romantic comedy that pushes boundaries on several thematic levels, and one of the first films to explore the comedy that can be found in Swedish politics.
