Comments about and by Johan
To a question in a chat with the readers of Aftonbladet 000529
– Things started happening with ”Lust...”. Dad wrote letters to me, that now it's getting close, I dismissed it, wrote rather harsh and short answers.
Bo thought it was fun, to tell everyone that there was an interest in me.

The title of the film derives from a psalm that is usually sung when school breaks for the summer. The first line is "Den blomstertid nu kommer, med lust och fägring stor...", which translates to something like "The blossoming season now arrives, with pleasure and beauty great..."
"The beetle is a nice animal. But I'll use the saw and give a piece to everyone who had a part in it."
