Instead of Abracadabra (Patrick Eklund | Sweden | 22 min.)

Tomas is a little bit too old to still be living with his parents, but
his dream of becoming a magician leaves him with no other option.
Bengt, his father, just wants him to grow up and get a proper job. But
when Tomas meets his beautiful new neighbor Monica, he realizes that
there is only one acceptable course of action: he must perform his
greatest feat of magic at his father’s birthday party. Nominated for
an Academy Award in 2010.
