agreed @yaboom... this was by far one of the best films of 2011. those kids acting surpassed many grossly overpaid adult actors of many of our blockbuster movies. this movies cast of kids really sucked you in and made you feel the emotions of the particular character they were playing... bravo to all of them!
WOW!!! I want to kick myself for never giving this series any attention. IT"S FANTASTIC!! Definitely will have to be able to sit down and read the subtitles to keep up with the dialogue, but well worth it!!!
"The Swedes have achieved something unique with this show. Real Humans is about a reality where human-like robots are commonplace in today's world and perform such roles as home assistants, companions to lonely souls, workers of all types and, of course, sex toys. The show follows a selection of different people as they live in this world, from the family with the curious teenage boy, to an old man needing home assistance, and a lonely man who's job is threatened by them, and a woman in love with one. It also follows a group of obsolete and disowned "hubots" who are a quest to avoid being scrapped and recycled. The day-to-day coexistence between humans and hubots provides often amusing situations but there's also a darker side in each episode which makes you feel for them. I'm not ashamed to admit it's a soap, but a very intelligent one, and a very open one. Strictly for older kids and adults."
the trailer doesn't do the film any justice whatsoever. Neither does the given English title. This is a well written story and the build-up grips you from the get go. When the mission begins, the pace is unrelenting, the action sequences extremely well done and same goes for the photography and decor. You'll find yourself routing for the commies as they face seemingly insurmountable odds. :-)
