Sune vs Sune

## ## ## ## ## ## ##

‘Sune, let’s take the hovercraft.’ – ‘You know it doesn’t really fly?’ – ‘Yes, I’m a kid; I’m not insane.’

Their swords drawn and mighty laser guns at the ready, Sune, his younger brother and his best friend Sophie regularly embark on epic fantasy battles. Yet as the summer holidays draw to an end, ten-year-old Sune has a different challenge waiting for him in the real world: a new classmate, whose name is also Sune. To his great consternation, he finds the new boy making quite an impression on the others. In fear of losing Sophie to his namesake and nemesis, Sune decides to reinvent himself, with tumultuous consequences. With ample humour and frequent forays into the fantastical, director Jon Holmberg deals with the fear of not being good enough, and the outrageous – but very human – behaviour it can produce.
