Kops

Josef Fares directed this Swedish comedy about a small-town police department struggling to cope with a lack of local crime. The six cops spend their days playing cards with senior citizens, hanging out at a snack joint eating “hot dog waffles,” and fantasizing about Hollywood-style crime-fighting mayhem. When word arrives that the government plans to disband the force, two cops plot to save their jobs by boosting the town's crime figures. The film has a lively visual style and some tartly funny moments, but too often succumbs to cloying folksiness and an overeagerness to please. 87 min. In Swedish with subtitles.
