Storyline

One Monday morning a thousand children leave the suburb Farsta and goes to Stockholm to occupy the Royal Castle. The children have formed a group called S.O.P.O.R. as a protest against the way adults treat children and how the adults have destroyed the future for their children. They demand that the robots in the industry are replaced by humans to create job opportunities. They take the royal family as hostages. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Original, and way better than it has credit for
15 April 2016 | by OJTSee all my reviews

SOPOR which in Swedish means the equivalent to trash, is a Monty Pythonesque comedy about a day when all children one morning disappears, before the grown ups realize that the children has taken control over society, and takes the Swedish royal family hostage, and at a press conference explaining that SOPOR stands for "Sveriges Onödigforklarades protest organization" which means Swedens unnecessary peoples protest organization" - about giving every person a meaning.

The film is one of the last feature comedies by the popular comedian Tage Danielson, released four years before he died.

The film is a comedy which really takes the modern society up to discussion. A society where the grown ups are controlling everything, and where children and youngsters are obsolete hostages by grown ups, which from the children's point of view takes many bad decisions.

In a way you could also say this film defines criticism of modern socialism and Nordic social democracy, and even to the royal family. A society with no child work and no other demand than going to school.

I found the film both interesting and entertaining, and for fans of crazy comedies in Monty Python style and the likes, this film is very recommended.
