Bert doesn't look like a typical heartthrob – lanky, bespectacled, and a bit of a nerd. Despite this, he believes he is absolutely irresistible, and won't settle for just any girl. At the moment, he has set his sights on Leila. It is his good luck that he is in the same class as her younger sister, whom he can use to gain access to Leila. But wait: isn't Amira actually far more interesting than her sister? Based on a popular series of books, the film is a formally inventive and zany comedy about the travails of first love.

Michael Lindgren

Actor, producer and filmmaker from Stockholm, better known under the pseudonym DJ Trexx, the satirical persona of a Croatian DJ under the spell of turn-of-the-century Eurodance rhythms. Lindgren and his alter ego form part of the cast of the TV sketch program Grotesco, dedicated to satire and absurdist and surreal humour, as both a performer and writer. Bert's Diary is his feature film debut.
