11 January 2006 | by sometimesneverSee all my reviews

This movie (or mini TV-series?) is about three brothers who live alone with their mum in the mountains. They own a bit of the mountain and a couple of cottages, which they rent to visitors. It's snowing 24/7 and their job is to take care of the skiing-ways (they're "Pistvakter"). There's also a little bar, but the bartender only serves home-distilled.

The creators of the show spent the smallest amount of money possible on "Pistvakt" so e.g. instead of having real snow or ice in the background, they use sheets. It might sound very dumb, but actually it made the movies a lot more funny.It's a comedy that got very popular in Sweden. Personally, I loved it, but a lot of people can't stand it. The sense of humor is...not childish but stupid in some kind of way. If you've got any sense of humor I really recommend you to see it.
