  • Svensk Premiär

Mysig feelgood om avsaknaden av kommunikation mellan generationerna och det som kanske har gått förlorat i vår tillväxtshetsande framgångsiver.

Grump grymtar sig igenom livet och när hans fru dör ser han ingen anledning att leva vidare. På sin frus begravning berättar han att han bestämt sig för att dö. Grump står i stark kontrast till sin ena son, som är bosatt i Belgien och besatt av lyx och sin egen och dottern Sofias framgång. Hon har kommit in på Princeton och är pappas fjäder i hatten. Nu vill han att hon ska plugga och nätverka, men Sofia har helt andra planer. Andra filmen om The Grump knyter an till den moderna nordiska komeditraditionen (läs Ove och Hundraåringen) om gnälliga äldre män med ett rättrådigt och ärligt hjärta.

Regissör: Tiina Lymi

(date of birth, studies, work history, personal interests…):
Tiina Lymi (born in 1971) is a well-known Finnish actress. Her latest successes as a director are Off the Map and Lapland Odyssey 3 and as a writer the awarded TV series Morbid Stories.

The film includes two of the decicive elements of life: the birth and the death. Through this juxtaposition, we get to see an old man who has chosen death, and follow his journey towards the new beginning and the feeling of being useful again. He has to weigh the familiar in his mind, his established ways of life and facing the others; despite his stubborn attitudes, to be able to change - at least a little. To me, this story makes a heartfelt comedy, with a touch of pain of giving up. The humor springs from the meeting of two worlds - the predestined, stagnated and stale era of the 60's and 70's when Finland was ruled by the ever-present president Kekkonen and when it was easy to define right and wrong - and the ambivalent, restless and directionless modern days. To the actors, this story offers a great possibility to build characters with a large scale of emotions, to be precise and comical, but most of all, to be true and believeable. All the main characters have to see themselves through the eyes of the others; what reactions have my actions caused in my close relatives? How am I just like the person I hate and fear the most? These moments of contradiction give us a fantastic opportunity to look at humans when they're bare and vulnerable. This movie will be beautiful - and funny. It will touch you, make you laugh, make you to evaluate your own choices. To make you think about your relationship with your children and your parents, with your intolerable relatives. To face your own attitudes. I think our time needs this movie.
