Tootsie in the sky with hijinks

Poster for 'Cockpit' (2012)As it happens, I wasn’t anywhere near New York City Thursday night, which is perhaps something of a pity, because I might have gotten to see a 2012 Swedish comedy with the unsubtle title Cockpit, as suggested by an apparently enthusiastic Tatyana:

After getting fired from his current job as a pilot, and dumped by his current wife, Valle seeks to find a new job. Out of desperation on the job market for male air pilots, he disguises himself as a woman in order to get a job at Silver, an airline seeking a female pilot. The dividing line between his female and male self, as well as his personal and love life, starts to blur to a point which he eventually is unable to handle.

Jonas Karlsson stars as Dustin Hoffman. And anyway, I suspect Tatyana would go to this event for reasons other than seeing weird Swedish variations on American film themes.

    Naturally, I wanted free meatballs!
    That’s how it looked:
    Freaks everywhere, not just on the screen, cool breeze from the river, seats like a movie director’s, and boxed Swedish appetizers (gravlox, 3 kinds of herring and shrimps on a white bread) – excellent evening
