Welcome to the world

This is a sweet (half an hour long) movie on Nina, a girl who lives with her father after her parents divorced. The man seems to be more interested in UFOs than in his daughter. Things go wrong when she wants to go to a party and he doesn't let her. When he and a friend go out to look for a UFO, she steals the car, but her poor driving skills lead her to crash the car, a crash her father mistakes for a UFO landing. (I have only told you the first ten minutes of the plot, so don't fear I spoiled this short.)

Looking at this summary, you might think this is just an ordinary film with some melodramatic moments. Well, it has some melodrama, but some scenes are incredibly funny (take her father's reaction when he thinks a UFO has landed) and most of this movie is quite beautifully shot (especially the scene in the water). It's also nice to see Rebecka Liljeberg (as Nina) in a movie slightly older than the one that would make her known all over the world (well, large sections of the world). The scenes in Närkontakt make Amal look really boring.
