Rita (Eva Röse) works as a dog groomer at a small salon in the southern part of Stockholm. In the little spare time she has, she takes care of her very demanding aunt Edith (Lena Nyman). The days are long and strenuous for Rita who feel constricted in her situation and she dreams of a life of her own with love and affection. Via the help of the caretaker Samir (Eagle-Eye Cherry), Rita manages to take some time off for a weekend in order to seek guidance on how she can change her life at a resort. Knut (Niklas Engdahl) works as journalist for a yellow press newspaper. He moves freely and easily in the centre of Stockholm and is pretty much high on himself. Then the editor in chief sends Knut on a mission to write about fuzzy roads to self-fulfillment at the same resort Rita has gone to. And this is where he meets her and his life takes new turns he couldn´t have imagined earlier…

“Att Göra En Pudel” (“White Trash”) is a simple, funny, sad but yet endearing and lovely little film I must say. The notion of wanting to change, grasp for something new and the wish to be loved and seen for who you are is the message here and it´s communicated well in a sort of “Amelie” way. Eva Röse is convincing as the too kind and lost for love Rita with her colourful clothes, makeup and hairdo. Eva Röse has been a personal favourite for many years and she has this magnificent radiant looks and a smile to die for. How can you not fall in love with her? Yes, the dramatic take and script is hardly something unique and more or less a no brainer. But, there´s this as said endearing feeling to it with colourful characters and it manages to bring out some of your emotional sides and feelings. (3 out of 5)
