STOCKHOLM: WHO IS THE SWEDISH MAN?

So you’ve heard a lot of things about Swedish men, you’re in Sweden and you want to know more. What do you do? You take to the streets and ask the people! We learned that the Swedish man is kind, sensitive, well-dressed (and tall). We also learned a new word: jantelagen. This is a peculairly Scandinavian thing that appearently eschews great individual success and welcomes fitting in with the wider society. Have you ever come across this? Who do you agree with most in the film? We want to know!
