Storyline

This farce cocerns Sweden's King Gustav (Per Oscarsson who plays all the lead roles). The royal monarchs of three major European countries are patiently or not-so-patiently hovering on the sidelines while watching the future King Gustav closely. No single king appears to possess the brains he was born with, so history seems to be made by default, as it were. Gustav does blunder around, but not enough to miss being crowned king. As a result, France, England, and Germany invade Sweden hoping to take by force what they could not gain by incompetence. Written by Ørnås

Greatest trainwreck i swedish movie history
29 April 2019 | by urverksapelsinSee all my reviews

A movie that fails in every aspect. A comedy that is not funny. It contains the greatest movie and comedy stars i Sweden at the time (1980). Yet there is not one funny or entertaining scene. Sverige åt svenskarna (Sweden for the swedes) is extremely badly made. Sound, light, story - everything. It makes Captain Yellowbeard look funny! It was supposed to cost 4 miljons. It ended on 20 millions (apparently because of costumes). Today (2019) the money is still missing. Therefore it cannot be showed i Sweden. Fiasco, bankruptcy and the man who made it went to prison because of unpaid bills. The story? Hard to say, sweden needs a new king. English, french and germans are interested. But it ends with Sweden for the swedes.
