Human and punk - to the core
14 October 2013 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is punk! Even more punk than Julien Temple's "The Filth and The Fury", the great documentary about the Sex Pistols and England in the late 1970s. Presented are a few young individuals who think alike and don't waver for a second to present their own opinions. They're unique

  • just like the rest of us - and just so you know, just because disco


came around, doesn't mean punk's dead.

We're shown families, their lives, their honesties and lies, and what makes them tick; I think this is one of Moodysson's biggest strengths as a director. And he's used unknown actors, which is another one of his strengths.

This film is not nostalgia, but a document of what life can really be like. Just as Joakim Thåström sings in one of the soundtracks to the film, you're encouraged to stay a rebel - and this is just one of the many ways to stay one.

It's a hardcore film that's cute, sad, very funny, very Swedish and human from the core on out. The script is great, the dialogue should be a blueprint on how Swedish realism should be, Moodysson still claims the throne as the best living Swedish director, and this film will live on forever. I really hope this gets syndicated throughout the world, because that's what it deserves.
