Foreign, fascinating, and awesome. This documentary is funny, thought provoking, and honest. It has great comedic timing – kept reminding me of Arrested Development, – it is hilarious and a must see for sure. We follow a torn owner of a burned down swingers club in Sweden and a broke theater owner in need of cash. This binds two liberal businessmen together and it all unwinds in the middle of a Christian conservative neighborhood that want nothing to do with sex. This film’s not about sex, it’s about the rebuilding of a respectful establishment, a place for people all over the region to have fun, party, and be free. It is set in a Moulin-Rouge-style, LGBT Burlesque show/sex club, and despite it’s unusualness, it’s a colorful documentary that will keep you smiling and hopefully laughing, like I did. Enjoy!
