For 25-year-old Sebastian or Sebbe (Martin Wallström) it is all about surface and appearance. Life is full of party, money and one-night stands. He has never challenged himself, whether it be his dream of a music career or maybe, especially true love. When everything is at its best in his superficial life he has an accident that leads to him becoming blind. A whole world closes, or rather opens up. When he sees everything in black, he meets Mia (Mylaine Hedreul), a personal assistant. A girl he normally would not pay any attention to. She becomes the first to successfully open his eyes to what is important in life. But when Sebastian discovers that Mia is not who he expected superficiality gets an entirely different meaning.
EGO is a romantic comedy drama about vanity, love, sex, and that things are not always as they seems
Writer/Director: Lisa James-Larsson

Jarang-jarang menemukan filem romcom dari Sweden nih. Story nya klise banget. Sebastian atau akrab dipanggil Sebbe adalah super hot, super sexy (ya ampyunnn gantengnyaaaaaa) adalah womanizer/playboy/tajir tapi banyak gaya/males kerja/maunya cepet sukses jadi penyanyi.
Pas Sebbe buta, dunia pun runtuh. Cuman ada satu cewek yang setia menemani. Tapi habis manis sepah dibuang deh. Pas udah sembuh, Mia pun ditinggalin ama Sebbe. Trus Sebbe menyadari dia salah and happy ending.
Story might be cliche, but it’s still fun movie to watch. A stylish movie, with beautiful people on it. Little bit dragging in front and end but still watchable.
Martin Wallström is perfect as Sebbe, handsome, sexy, can act and can sing.
If Swedish man is like him, I think I have to visit the country ASAP!
Last but not least, I love the music here. The directing combines with the music are making this movie worth seeing.
