Matti and his friend Niila, who is an unusually quiet boy feeling bad because his father is abusing him grow up in Pajala in the 60's. They share the interest in music since the day Niila got a vinyl single with the song "Rock and Roll Music" and they played it on Matti's sister's gramophone. It's the same day they also share another thing that matters to history: a kiss. Although they are just "innocent" prepubertal children, the narrator does not let us forget that part. Fast-forwarding to high school and Matti has begun to be interested in girls and women and browsing frantically in porn magazines as soon as he gets hold of one. But Niila does not seem at all interested in girls, he is only interested in guitar playing and to escape from the small-town mistress à la Fucking Åmål.Written by
The life of two young boys in the outskirts of Sweden
I have just seen the film, and i loved it! I've read the book and it was a lot better because it had more details, but the film has a certain atmosphere of it's own that is quite magic. The way the story is told is great, and you really get involved with the film. And it is very funny as well! I emmidiately felt the urge to go see the magnificent landscapes in the film, and maybe i will some day. I loved the actors in it, Björn Kellman is always wonderful to watch, but the younger actors were great too. I liked Andreas af Enehjelm (Niila) in particular, he seems to be a very sensitive actor. Let's have more Finnish and Swedish films, the languages are beautiful and the stories go straight to the heart!
