Generic and uninspired, 5 April 2016

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

"Love" from almost 10 years ago is a Swedish 20-minute movie that got a solid deal of attention recently because it features the very young Alicia Vikander, an Academy Award winner this year. And she was also the main reason I got curious about this movie. Sadly for us, she is pretty much completely irrelevant in here and has almost no screen-time despite being listed as the third credit. The writer and director is David Färdmar and his career has not turned into something special since this film. Same can be said about the two male lead actors. It is not surprising though. Neither the script nor their performances are memorable at all. The story is just the same as in all these other uncountable gay-themed short films. Denial about homosexuality, self-hate, doubts etc. This film is a clear example of somebody trying to make a difference, but just not having the talent. Pretentious alert. Don't watch.
