Five youngsters have grown to be men in Falkenberg. This is the story of their last summer together in the little west coast town. They are all different, with different views upon life and the future. Life is over, yet just to start. The adulthood is about to start, but are they ready? Not all of them, and not all will reach there either. A meditation about life, poetic, balanced, which will remind most of their own childhood and coming of age, and the melancholy of life changes, when you know there's no turning back. A last farewell to a hometown, the little town by the sea.Written by
How on earth were these guys given funds to make this movie? The lack of script is one thing, but the cinematography makes you want to weep. A hand held camera can be of great value to the look and feel of a movie but in that case you need a photographer who knows what he is doing. I am well aware that the actors are amateurs but it's of no defence since the director might be the least talented one ever directing in Sweden. It would be a shame for the industry if he (or any in the team for that matter) is given money to make a film ever again. This movie simply provides fuel to the argument that too many movies are made in Sweden each year.
