A Swedish comedy about...a cleaner who is afraid of spiders, an engineer who fries his testicles with 40,000 volts of electricity, a failing CEO of a communications company, a sad and lonely man, a group of terrorists who are driven by their allergy to electricity, horrible all-in-one sleep suits and so much more besides.
In truth that's not what "Flicker" is about...those are just people and things that make up the action.
This is a film about people...the ties that bind them and the hope that lives inside of them.
Everyone in this beautiful and hilarious film is feeling desperate or alone. They are all looking for something more in their lives...someone to love them, a cure to the troubles that haunt them, someone to care, a jolt of happiness.
Unlike a lot of modern (American) comedy this is a film that has heart and that will have you laughing out loud without ever having to rely on the vulgar, the crude or the ridiculous. Warm, gentle, kind and hilarious...lovely.
