Tsatsiki, morsan och polisen (Tsatsiki, Mum and the Policeman)

91' - 1999 - Drama, Family - Dialogue: Swedish
Director: Ella Lemhagen With: Samuel Haus, Alexandra Rapaport, Jacob Ericksson
In this charming Scandinavian family movie, director Ella Lemhagen spins a tale about a youth coming to terms with his identity and his single mom. Eight-year-old half-Greek Tsatsiki lives in a Stockholm suburb with his attractive mother, who dreams of being a rock star. Tsatsiki longs to meet his Greek father, believing that he is an octopus fisherman in the Mediterranean. In preparation for a future meeting with his absent dad, he practises swimming at the local gym. Meanwhile, Tsatsiki's mom, who was dating her band's bass player, has fallen for a dashing young cop who is a boarder in her house. (Jonathan Crow)
