Underrated and forgotten Swedish masterpiece
11 March 2013 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

If you are patient, this movie will knock you out. It is like a good brandy or a glass of wine: it will affect you slowly. This film will possess you with its atmosphere and mood. If you let it.

I think Odjuret catches the problem of our time and of the late 20th / early 21st century. The chaotic world which you cannot control. The country which is beautiful on the one hand, but consumes you and keep you from human relationships and possibilities on the other hand. These youths are without goals or imaginations about the future. For them there is no future, it is certain from the beginning to the very end.

And this movies is great because it catches not a particular problem of a country (by the way: who would think that Sweden is so unbearable?), but a universal one which concerns every young people nowadays from Sweden through my homeland to Japan.
