Stockholm as it is.
22 January 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a marvelous film. Authenticity is its most prominent feature and also its strength; the movie is - in my opinion - THE most accurate description of Stockholm in the 1990's, all cultural expressions accounted for. Typically Swedish phenomena like "the 90's disease" - a post-Swedish Welfare State societal maelstrom affecting the thirty-year-olds and the even younger population - and as well as the somewhat timeless emotional struggling in trying to fit into your "age slot" are depicted with the strokes of geniuses. I myself have seen the film about twenty times over a period of seven years, and I am experiencing new aspects of it as I grow older, noticing new details every time I watch it. To sum up: It's a must-see.
