Svenskjävel / Underdog

by Ronnie Sandahl Feature Film Competition

Ana "Dino" Dinovic dreams of a better life. Just like many other Swedes, this unemployed young second generation immigrant has turned her back on her country to try her luck in neighboring Norway. She finds odd jobs in Oslo to make ends meet, and spends her nights at wild parties. Family father Steffen is also on the verge of a new beginning: This former tennis pro is trying to build up a sushi bar business in Oslo. With his wife abroad on business, he is completely overwhelmed with the task of taking care of his two daughters. Enter Dino, who offers her services as a nanny. The strange, carefree Swede manages to win over the hearts of the two girls in no time. But Steffen is also having trouble containing his affection for the almost twenty-year younger woman – what will life bring?
Ronnie Sandahl’s feature film debut SVENSKJÄVEL is a timeless coming-of-age drama about love, vulnerability and finding a place in the world.
