OT: Spring Uje spring

Henrik Schyffert // Sweden, 2020
Fiction Feature // FF2020



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.


HENRYK SCHIFFERT (*1968) is a Swedish comedian, actor and musician. Spring Uje Spring is his directorial debut.
