Storyline

The year is 1964 and it's summer in a little rural village in Dalarna, Sweden. The two friends Anders and Börje rides around with their mopeds, waiting for something to happen. Then suddenly from out of nowhere a girl gets off the bus in a short yellow skirt. It's Sofia - a plain copy of Brigitte Bardot. It's like if Anders and Börje have been blinded by the sun. They're both obssessed by sex and slowly starts to figure out how to see Sofia naked. Soon they get a brilliant idea... Why not make a movie and let Sofia have the leading role. Everything doesn't fall right into place, but this is the beginning of a summer with incidents and secrets that the boys even in their wildest dreams never could have believed.

I would like to counter the last writer with arguments that hold
22 October 2003 | by (Linkoping, Sweden) – See all my reviews

First of all- my experience from "Dubbel-8" was one of the most pleasant ones in front of the screen ever. The movie by extraordinary Daniel Fridell is indeed about a nerd overcoming the badass. But it has more than one side you know, like most movies if I'm not mistaken? It's not at all "BAD" moviemaking as you put it. Infact I can't understand what you actually mean (?) The angles and the sound, the unknown and still great actors, and not forgetting Fridell's sense and feeling through out the whole film, make this movie one, close to the best, swedish films made in modern time! And that's callad "GOOD" film-making. I reject that it's being called "hollywood-ish". If you feel that poor american highschool-moovies can messure up to this film, that's your opinion- but Swedish filmmaking has so much more feeling, and art, than hollywoods. The one thing that usually make a hollywood film better made, is the fact that they are deeling with 100 of million dollars, while swedish filmmakers have a budjet of about 15 times less. During the last part of the 80s, and during the 90s, swedish filmmaking was not that great at all (my opinion). But this film together with the last few years of films from diretors like Lukas Moodysson and Josef Faras, let us all know that swedish filmmaking is back! PS. X-cuse my really bad english, but it is late, and I do not like the idea of changing something I've written at this hour. ;)DS.
