Trust Me (Swedish: Puss, literally "Kiss") is a 2010 Swedish comedy-drama film written and directed by Johan Kling, starring an ensemble cast including Alexander Skarsgård, Gustaf Skarsgård and Susanne Thorson. The screenplay focuses on a group of young people who are running a small theater in Stockholm.



Trust Me was produced by St Paul Film in co-production with Nordisk Film, Sveriges Television, Canal+ and the Norwegian company Spillefilmkompaniet 4½. It received seven million SEK from the Swedish Film Institute, plus support from Nordisk Film- & TV Fond and local funds in Stockholm and Gotland. The total budget was 21.5 million SEK.[1][2] Filming started in September 2008, but after only ten days Johan Kling experienced a burnout and the production was postponed. "I felt like Lord Jim who left his own ship", the director later commented. Filming resumed the following August and principal shooting ended in October 2009.[1]
