A mediocre youth film
1 February 2003 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews



This film lacks the depth of Swedish films, and feels American rather than European almost throughout. Except for the apparent fact that a beauty like Ebba Hultkvist only exists in Sweden :-) The younger you are, the more you would enjoy this film. I haven't seen many festival films, and I'm still at the age to go to a festival of that nature so I did fancy watching the film, and I certainly don't think it deserves a rating of 4 although most people seem to think that way. I gave it a 7/10.

There are some scenes that are extremely exaggerated, especially the scene with Lina stealing her mom's car and driving into the crowd. A teen girl wouldn't drive the car so brutally. And the scene with the "easy" girl running into the arms of Lina's boyfriend for instant sex. That just doesn't happen in real life. Or if anyone knows a girl like that, you know how to reach me :-)

This film made me feel in a way similar to how I feel with the Tsatsiki series. As a keen follower of the Swedish cinema, I think this one does not really fit right into the Swedish film phenomenon. It's not a bad one, but just an average one. I could put in the same "class" as 99% of the movies made in Hollywood.

If you guys fancy films revolving around teens/young people, and fancy more depth, I recommend Panna Nikt. Not as "enchanting" as this one, but better than this one by all means. I recommend this movie only to those in their early 20's and younger.
