Hotel Gyllene Knorren

Allowed 90 minutes 2011 5.6

The Rantanen family hotel is completely empty during the summer, so mom Ritva starts to grow organic vegetables in an effort to attract guests but the family pet Pyret the pig destroys the garden. The fancy hotel next door owned by the Grossman family is hosting an agility competition where first prize is SEK 50,000. The Grossman family is planning to take home the prize themselves and butter up the competition judge every chance they get. Ingo Rantanen sees a chance to earn some money for the family business and signs up Pyret for the competition. Soon, the whole family is invested in the idea. Malena Jansson at Svenska Dagbladet calls the film "a Swedish version of Fawlty Towers" where the dialogue is "fun and the script classically smart.
