Storyline

This documentary is the third in a trilogy about a group of Swedish nonconformists. The first documentary was shot in 1967, and followed a bunch of rebellious youths around. These kids had nothing but contempt for those who fit into the society around them, and they were experimenting with drugs, and partying pretty heavily. In particular, it tells the stories of two young men, Kenta and Stoffe. Then, in 1979, the documentarian returns to cover the two men's lives, and the lives of their friends. What had been a friendly, cheerful bunch is now deeply involved in petty crime and drug use. Indeed, one of the two men followed in the earlier film (Stoffe) dies of a drug overdose during the filming of the documentary. The filmmaker returned in the early '90s, to see what has become of Stoffe's family, his friends, and Kenta and his family and friends. Stoffe's wife refused to meet with the filmmaker, but indicated that his son had been adopted, and has become a mechanic, living in the ... Written by g.c.

See the whole triology

This movie is the third in a triology by Stefan Jarl, often called the Mods-triology. That title could be misunderstood because the films doesn't follow mods just swedish teenage drugrebels in the 60's. This last film summons Jarls work and shows that he has been developing himself as an documentary filmer. Jarl is often in picture and he tells us that the filming of this three films has been complicated even in moral ways. It starts with an answer machine message from late "Stoffes" widow, telling Jarl she hate him and that there will not be a third movie. Later in the film we can see when Jarl is about to meet "Stoffes" child. I will not tell you if he does. Det Sociala Arvet follows "Stoffes" best friend "Kenta" (the two of them are the main characters in the first film) and how he tries to knock of the booze and moving to a little village in nowhere called Hallabro. We can also hear the people from the earlier films make comments on what they said then, the first film is from the 60's the second from the 70's. If you see the whole triology you will be aware that you have seen the best documentary ever made about social underclass.
