Suddenly it’s Parkinson’s: Uje Brandelius, singer of the Stockholm pop band Doktor Kosmos, plays himself in this moving Swedish comedy. Uje is in his mid-40s and leads a life many would dream of: Stockholm, a wonderful family and a job as presenter of a popular radio programme. When he is diagnosed with Parkinson’s, Uje’s world is turned upside down. Unable to trust anyone, he tries to hide the illness from family, friends and colleagues – and feels his way uncertainly into a new normality.
