A love story between two young men where one is the androgynous Sebastian and one is Andreas who is not gay. They form a unity. It's them against the polished Swedish IKEA society. They dream about escaping boredom and the risk of becoming what everyone else is. And then there is Ellie - the superwoman growing inside of Sebastian who Andreas loves and fears. This is the summer when everything happens and both of them will choose paths that will determinate their lives forever. It's a battle for love where Sebastian finally has to realise that he has to let Ellie loose, find the strength within himself and not let his happiness depend on someone else.

"Something Must Break" brilliantly avoids the pitfalls inherent to LGTB films.
27 October 2016 | by losindiscretoscineSee all my reviews

Even though there are more and more films about transgenders, "Something Must Break" (the title refers to a song by Joy Division) deploys arguments and a beauty that go beyond what we are used to see. Saga Becker performs brilliantly in this first role (no wonder why the director took two years to find her actress) that she plays with tenderness and melancholy. Despite a cold scenery and a gloomy Stockholm, the warmth of the characters and the intimacy that they build together has something charming and even magical. The camera focus on the bubble in which the characters live and it follows their evolution –natural but sometimes abrupt – on their quest to get what they desire. The purity from the tenderness scenes is literally mesmerising and "Something Must Break" brilliantly avoids the pitfalls inherent to LGTB films. Far from the colours and extravagance of Araki's movies, this movie is quite rough but still offers some crazy scenes, an insanity that stem from Andreas and Ellie's passion. Because we never know if this passion is made of love or not, but the director wants to make the viewer understand that the goal is not to know or to see it but to feel it.
