The film Äta Sova Dö, must be seen!
4 March 2013 | by ingelaallardSee all my reviews

The film is set in a small village in the south of Sweden, but could as well be taken place in any of the many depopulated villages in the North.

This flick is a small masterpiece with multiple layers and a great thorn in the eye for the hypocritical authority-Sweden! Because this is not the social realistic Sweden that we are used to see. Here we meet a Sweden so ugly, so neglected and so heartbreaking real that the only consolation for the villagers is a forced community in the local pizzeria.

The main character Ràca is played with divine passion by the yet unknown Nermina Lucac. And even though most of the actors in this film are unknown, their performances are more realistic than most I have seen in any Hollywood blockbuster. Maybe we could call it a Swedish "Winter's bone" but still it would be to compare American country music to Swedish "dansbandsmusik".

Gabriella Pilcher has with great accuracy and skill given birth to the characters and the surroundings of the small sleeping village and has created a human mosaic that forces all prejudices to burst. The film can actually be seen by both anti-racists as well as racists…!

But above all, Äta Sova Dö is a unique portrait of a female character. Never has a film portrayed a woman like that, a girl with no frills and no feminine adornments. She is just what she is: a rustic, down-to-earth girl from Montenegro with big heart and a guts that will crush every other unrealistic female roll that we have seen on film before.

See the film…. It's an order!
