Synopsis

A Fargo -influenced comedy set in the frozen wilds of northern Sweden, Baba’s Cars is an enjoyable romp involving Russian drug runners, small-time shysters, and a lot of jokes best appreciated by Scandi auds. Dumb blonde Anso (Sara Sommerfeld) wants Jojo (Andreas Wilson) to do more in life than ice fishing, so long as it’s not working for her estranged dad, used car salesman and general fence Baba (Hassan Brijany). But when Jojo spends their savings, Anso blows her top and Jojo secretly agrees to act as Baba’s errand boy so he can recoup the money. His first job is to pick up a car from Eleena (Laura Malmivaara). Neither Baba nor Jojo realize the car really belongs to Eleena’s b.f. Ivan (Gyorgi Staykov), a Russian drug lord with whom she’s had a nasty spat. Unbeknownst to Eleena, Ivan stashed a fortune in dollars under the seat, money that belongs to the boss of all bosses. A genuine crowd-pleaser from helmer Rafael Edholm, pic’s good-natured hijinks and game cast keep chuckles flowing.
