Written by Mattias Thuresson. I just have to leave my own praise for this wonderful film. No other film has ever touched me this way, and I don't think anything will ever surpass this.
Maybe it's because Lukas Moodysson and I share so much common values Morrissey, obsession with teenage-romances and protective attitude towards that phase of life that is easily forgotten or denied. As a 24 year old male I cannot watch this with dry eyes and I have seen this about 9 times.
Rebecka Liljeberg's desperate eyes, thoroughly true blurted dialog, awkward silences and perfect resurrection for that old Foreigner song that doesn't fit into either of main character's musical taste, but will remain so important to them anyway I raise my glass of chocolate milk for this achingly beautiful movie, without this my own past would be more dark and forgotten, but you, Lukas, Alexandra, Rebecka and the rest have reminded me what love is all about and why it's still worth seeking.
It's not just a good movie, it's one of those rare certainly good things on earth. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. Full Cast and Crew. Release Dates. Official Sites.
