people living in the Swedish backyard and their life and obsessions
5 October 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

First of all I have to say that i enjoyed watching PIV, there are some hilarious things in it. But to appreciate it fully you should speak Swedish and preferably have a good knowledge of skånska(territorial accent). However there are a couple of things that left my with a bad feeling and more than one question. Basically i think that Piv will get my vote depending on what premises it was created. Who made it and why did they make it?

The characters a tragic, at least looked upon from an outsider perspective. They are not what can be considered "normal", they have weird obsessions and don't always come out as overly bright. Still, I can't decide if the movie was made with love and respect for them, or just for a good laugh. But from the cult following which the movie has generated the later seems to be why it has been so appreciated. And then it just comes of as very condescending and a way for "cosmopolitans" to make fun of the lower classes of society. And I can't but help to think that that's the case. Also considering the fact that the filmmakers voice is of a different sociolect(don't know if thats the correct term in English), ads to that. As well some weird editing make them seem more stupid than necessary and all this leads up to a questionable motif for the making of PIV.

No, unless the filmmakers give a reasonable answer to why the made PIV I can not approve of it.
