A cattle baron takes in an orphaned boy and raises him, causing his own son to resent the boy. As they get older the resentment festers into hatred, and eventually the real son frames his stepbrother for fathering an illegitimate child that is actually his, seeing it as an opportunity to get his half-brother out of the way so he can have his father's empire all to himself.

At all.Funny Story: I was a nominee at the National Youth Film Festival in 2013 and the kid who played Horrid Henry, Theo Stevenwhatever, was a celebrity guest. As we were leaving the venue, this guy walks past us, nods and gives a "hi - I'm famous" smile. I look him in the eyes and shake my head. He left.

(gb) wrote: It's a warm story about fulfilment of one's dreams. The movie is set in the 60's when gender roles still were strong, but little by little started to give way for a new way of thinking. The moral of this movie is to follow your heart and do what you want, regardless gender roles. The picture was all right, but I expected more. The only thing really bugged me was the pace the story was told; in a movie with cars and fast driving that pace was way too slow.Eva Rose (spelled with an "o" with an umlaut) plays a woman with a lead foot. She accepted a position of a veterinarian's assistant for one reason only; the possibility to really tear up the forest roads as she travels between the customer's farms. She gets the opportunity to become a real rally driver, but has to fight the conventions of the time where women more of less are supposed to be quiet and look nice. Rose plays her role very well and so does Marie Robertsson, who plays her somewhat reluctant co-driver. Janne "Loffe" Carlsson, playing a reporter for the local newspaper, used to be a really funny bloke, but apart from a couple times when the old funster shone through he appeared rather tired.The movie is set in the 60's, but I have to say that I couldn't really feel it. The setting, the cars and the clothes were OK, but the general mood was missing. And I did spot a mistake with the register plates on one of the visiting cars participating in a race of a more international flavour. Without getting to technical I can say that the plates were slightly out of date. 3 out of 5 stars

De vez en cuando tengo que volver a ella.La mezcla de dos directores con tanta personalidad como Rodrguez y Tarantino podra haber resultado en un desastre, pero el resultado es ms bien todo lo contrario: una realizacin impactante (esa primera hora...), genial msica, brutales efectos prcticos, un ritmo y diversin a prueba de bombas.Todo un disfrute de pelcula.
