A hit in its native Sweden, this 2003 romantic comedy about a newly ordained minister and his love affairs—one with an old flame, the other with a wheelchair-bound member of his flock—is effective in parts but cloying and predictable as a whole. The best scenes play off class differences: the reverend, who comes from a privileged background, has difficulty connecting with his poor congregation, but wins them over at a funeral by inviting the deceased's friends to retell his bad, off-color jokes. Director Daniel Lind Lagerlof makes a nice use of 'Scope compositions of multicharacter scenes. In Swedish with subtitles. 100 min.
