Welcome to Our Delightful Soccer Game
9 June 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1975, in Stockholm, the housewife Elisabeth (Lisa Lindgren) gets tired of her abusive and drunken husband Rolf (Michael Nyqvist), and she moves with her teenager daughter Eva (Emma Samuelsson) and her young son Stefan (Sam Kessel) to the hippie community where her brother Goran (Gustav Hammarsten) lives. Goran is a good man, who has an open relationship with his mate Lena (Anja Lundqvist), but does not feel comfortable with the situation. They are welcomed by the group composed of a new-lesbian Anna (Jessica Liedberg), her "almost gay" husband and their children; a gay; and an idealist communist. Eva becomes friend of her neighbor Fredrik, and with the new-arrivals in the commune, lives of the members change. Meanwhile, Rolf misses Elizabeth and his family, stops drinking and tries to approach to Elizabeth again.

"Tillsammans" is a delightful dramatic comedy of this great Swedish director Lukas Moodysson. The story is very human and engaging, with many characters very well-developed that find themselves in a world of freedom and without repression, changing their behaviors and improving as human beings. Very hilarious, at least for South-Americans, the two boys playing of torture as if one of them was the Chilean General Augusto Pinochet. The integration promoted by the soccer game is fantastic. The soundtrack with hits of the 70's is wonderful and another attraction. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Bem-Vindos" ("Welcome")
