What a lonely man do in the end...
28 August 2015 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

A man, who has worked at Volvo loses his job and he has nothing to do. He wants to talk with someone but nobody listens to him. He looks so sad because of the loneliness. One day the door chime of his house rings and a young woman stands in front of the door. He invites her in the room and tries to talk her,but she only tells about religious things.

The film was produced in 1997 by a Swedish director, Lukas Moodysson. Actually the end of the film is quite shocking and I do not like such kind of ending. However, the performance of the actor who plays the role of the main character made me involved in the film. We can do nothing for the lonely man but we can learn how we should communicate with others from watching the film.
