Audience Member Liked the cross-telling with mulitple characters and their intertvined destenies. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member This is the Swedish version of Pulp Fiction Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Bra svensk film, för en gång skull. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Anyone knows where I can get hold of this film? Cannot find it on DVD. Saw it at an international film festival in Jerusalem in 1997, and really love it. Although I now live in Sweden, and have tried to find it at several shops - it seems that very few have heard about it. It is a great film that merits more recognition. Tuva Novotny, who also plays in Jalla Jalla - is a great young actress. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Many short stories, some tragic and some hilariously funny :) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the few multi-plot movies I really enjoy. Where most of them fail by losing sight of their main concept (<i>Magnolia</i>) or being an hour too long and getting lost in the weaker storylines (<i>Short Cuts</i>), <i>Tic Tac</i> is the one that seems the most balanced and accomplished.
