The Babylon Disease
14 September 2004 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

'Babylonsjukan' (The Babylon Disease) is a film about 20 something Maja who is an average middle class girl in Stockholm. Her boyfriend Olle is, like many neo-hippie-wannabes before him, leaving for India for six weeks and Maja has nowhere to live. Olle helps her move in with his friend Mattias, where she's given the kitchen as her bedroom and from there the story takes off.

The plot develops and while humor is a large ingredient there's a refreshing credibility (repeat after me Hollywood- creedibiiility) to it and any Western-European under 40 can easily relate to the issues of the film. It has some more intense moments as well and is given a twist by referring to the riots at the EU top meeting in Gothenburg in June, 2001. The actors are all unestablished but for enthusiasts of new Swedish film the guy who plays Olle can be seen in the Academy Award nominated film 'Ondskan' (Evil). All in all it's a sweet film anchored in every-day very early 21th century Stockholm.
