THERE ARE NO FEELINGS IN OUTER SPACE.
Aspergers-stricken Simon (Bill Skarsgård) moves in with his older brother Sam (Martin Wallström) and his girlfriend… but when she can’t stand him anymore and leaves, Simon tries to find a new one for Sam. Director Andreas Öhman’s feature debut is an expanded version of a short subject he made earlier that year. An entertaining story that Simon eventually, methodically, tries to turn into his own Hollywood-style romcom. Good actors, a few charmingly offbeat visual touches, and a levelheaded approach to the romance and Simon’s situation help steer the movie in the right direction.
