In 2002 she returned to Stockholm and started to direct drama, where her childrens feature film Krakel Spektakel has become classical for Swedish children.

Influenced by Jacques Tati and among others, her films have an original universe mixing a burlesque humor with drama, an impressive theatrical set design with VFX solutions and her Swedish background with a French touch.
