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.

The last in the Mods trilogy!!!!
20 November 2001 | by anton-6See all my reviews

This is what I think of the three films: "They call us Mods"-Great"A decent life"-a masterpiece"Generation to Generation"-Interesting.I think that you should show this films in schools.This film is by far perfect,it shows a few unnecessary scenes and the last minutes of the film is pretty bad.The first two films are better then this but it´s interesting because it´s about what happened to Kenta´s child Patrick.You can see what happened here.You will also get to see a few persons from the first two films.The Mods trilogy is a important piece of film history.4/5
