An interesting take on a big issue, but in the incoherent
5 October 2016 | by robin-vigerbackSee all my reviews

While, I can truly relate to a lot of the issues talked about in the film, the film is incoherent. For being a documentary exploring such a broad subject, it really doesn't go into depth with anything. It is basically, in the end, a variety of interviews and views of people and their lives in Sweden. It really does nothing than just paint a picture of Swedish culture as gray, without ever talking about why the director finds the culture gray. It is however really touching at times and the production is breathtaking occasionally. This is just a beautiful mess of a documentary, but a mess nonetheless. One of the least informative documentaries I've seen.
