for sure one of the best swedish films made
10 April 2000 | by (cupan) – See all my reviews

the storie is based on young paolo roberto´s own experiences in his teens. Paolo and his friends hang around kungsan at night as the get in trouble while robbing and beat down people. GET THE FACTS: in the summer of ´85-86 many teen gangs confronted eachother at kungsan at night and smaller riots started. The films director who worked as a social-science at that point heard about it and went downtown for the action. There he met young paolo, one of stockholms most feared teens. That is the major ingridiense for the film. This is truely a good film although it first was made for information in schools
