Touching and real
10 December 2004 | by katingusSee all my reviews

This first film in the "Dom kallar oss mods"-trilogy (They call us misfits") is truly great and less depressing than the two following films, which are also great but much more serious and sad. This is because Kenta (Kennet Gustavsson) and Stoffe (Gustav Svensson) are still young and naive, only 18 years old, and have not yet become alcoholics and drug addicts. Stefan Jarl has made a true documentary classic, capturing the zeitgeist of the 60's in Sweden while following these two exceptionally well spoken social misfits and their friends in their lives. You cannot help but liking Kenta and Stoffe,outspoken and friendly, they never really had a chance... Dom kallar oss mods is a unique, warm, generous and open-hearted movie. Don't miss it for the world. Lots of fun too.
