Storyline

It is the 70s and a group of very different individuals live together as a community. One of the members sister, Elisabeth needs a new place to stay with her children after having had enough of her alcoholist and abusive husband. Elisabeth is neither a socialist, feminist or into the green movement but ends up loving living in the community where they all learn from eachother. The film makes a little fun of people with strong ideals and "square" minds whether they be vegans, communists or people who absolutely disgust vegans or socialists, in the end the message of the film is that people can grow and gain from bonding with eachother. It also shows how we need to shape up a little for this to work, either through working with own behaviour that affects other people badly (like alcoholism or abuse) or the need to set up own boundaries and not let other people walk all over oneself.

This Is Life, Plain And Simple
11 February 2018 | by gogoschka-1See all my reviews

This film offers a slice of life, plain and simple. The writing is so subtle and the performances are so realistic that you start thinking you're watching a documentary about life in an actual commune during the seventies in Sweden. The film is incredibly funny but also tragic, moving and honest. It's one of those cinematic journeys that show you the humor and the darkness, the weight and the ridiculousness of our mundane existence; it's a film that finds excitement in the little things (that are actually the big things once you take a closer look). A true gem of a film and a wonderful, rich experience that leaves you with a smile on your face and more insight into the human condition. 9 stars out of 10.

In case you're interested in more underrated masterpieces, here's some of my favorites:
