talk, the short that led to F**king Amal
26 April 2007 | by (dublin,ireland) – See all my reviews

you must look at this short in the context of its director/writers Lukas Moodysson's career, without it he wouldn't have got to make F**king Amal.Actually this short and storyline was actually apart of the first few drafts of the F**king Amal script, the film would have been a slasher flick instead of the touching love story, based around Elin and Jessica finding out that their next door neighbor is a killer, and basically Agnes would have been a sub plot instead of a main character. I for one would like to see that version of the script. the performance of the old lonely man is top notch although the end is a bit over the top, just like a lot of Moodysson's career.
