Plot & Details
An actress tells a little white lie to land a plum role only to find the truth catches up with her in this comedy from Sweden. Bella (Martina Haag) is inching into her forties, and doesn't feel as if she has much to show for it in her personal and professional lives. Bella learns that Ingmar Bergman will be directing a new stage adaptation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, and she decides to take a chance and show up for an open audition. After Bella's reading, one of the members of the production staff asks if she has a background in acrobatics. Eager to land the part, Bella says yes, and to her delight she's cast in a small role while striking up a romance with another member of the troupe (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). However, with each passing day Bella becomes increasingly aware that if she doesn't tell someone that she doesn't know the first thing about acrobatics, her esteemed director will find out the hard way. Underbar och älskad av alla (aka Wonderful and Loved by All) was based on a novel by Martina Haag, who appears at Bella in this screen adaptation.
