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.

I enjoyed this documentary!
13 November 2000 | by mattiaskonigssonSee all my reviews

This is the second part of the "Mods"-trilogy and also the most tragic one. This is a time document from the welfare state Sweden. Everybody should see this movie/documentary, it makes you think about yourself and of those less fortunate. The young people from the first film have now grown up, but their need for alcohol and drugs has not disappeared.
