Storyline

This is Mette's story. Member of a neo-Nazi gang, her day job is to take care of four seniors that all are just waiting to die. Her life becomes a journey into a burlesque fairytale, where the rules of the game are created by Mette herself. Mette is indifferent about her way of life, until she one night assaults a man, kicking him senseless. Waking up the day after, she realizes that something is wrong, and accompanied by the crazy oldies, she longs for respect and love. Together, they create a world of their own. A world you never knew existed Written by Hanna Sköld

Trivia

In the autumn of 2007 Hanna Sköld (the Director) took a private bank loan of 10,000 euro to make her debut feature film "Nasty Old People". Now she continues to ignore the middle men in the film industry by distributing it together with the film collective RåFILM's Luffarbion, aka Vagabond Cinema, and the file sharing site The Pirate Bay. In addition, she releases it under a Creative Commons license so that anyone can download, share or remix the film. See more »

Surprisingly good
19 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure where I first saw links for this movie on the internet. It's the second movie that I've downloaded for free, the first being "Sita Sings the Blues" which wasn't nearly as good as this movie. I finally got around to watching it over the weekend, and was surprised at the quality of the film and of the story. This is as good as any drama I've seen, good story, good acting, and good quality across the board. This is a Swedish film, with the spoken language in Swedish. I played it with English subtitles, but really, Swedish isn't that far from German or English that the subtitles almost disappear.

The film is about what appears to be an average looking 19 year old girl, living in an average apartment. Right away, she reveals she is a Nazi (not a spoiler, this fact is known in the previews), and things get complicated in a hurry. The depiction of the "nasty old people" that she cares for and her interaction with them is well acted, and filmed with great attention to detail.

This is not a movie I would have bothered to go see at the theater, at least, not from the little bit I knew about it in advance. After having seen the movie once, I'm thinking I'll see it again. I'm glad it was available for download, as I doubt I'd seen it otherwise, and it really is worth seeing. One other thing about having the movie as an internet download that you can't do with a DVD -- I can fix the two typos I saw in the subtitles myself.
