    My Fir Lady

    A Skandi-Noir film in which Professor Henrik Hygge and his gay lover are on a hiking tour of the remote pine forests of northern Sweden when they come upon a wild girl, who offers them some flowers and a bottle of some strange brew made from berries. His friend bets the Professor that he cannot turn the wild girl into a good Social Democrat Scandinavian whose greatest aspiration in life is to own a nice house kitted out entirely from IKEA.

    At the end of the story, she is married and has a job at IKEA, but the Professor and his lover are living in naked and drunken squalor in a hut in the forest.

    There is no music. In stead, the film is full of long, strange, haunting silences, in which people stare at each other.

  • Can we do TV shows?
    And do they have to be spelt properly?

    No? That's a pity, because Tax (sitcom in an HMRC/IRS/whatever office) seems like quite a good idea, and I was really quite proud of Fraser (elderly Scottish undertaker moves to Seattle from Warmington-on-Sea to look after his lovable father and dole out advice on his radio show) but the spelling doesn't quite work.
