Bare truth!
18 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

The special thing about this documentary is it shows the side of Sweden which everybody try hard to hide from you. People in Sweden argument in many different ways that why the matter people try to get as far as possible from each other is good so basically people try to show that this is a positive and deliberate choice for good but the truth is it's the consequence of many problems in the society. It's interesting that everybody hates the fact that others try to get distance from them but at the same time they do the same. One of the root reasons for this type of behavior is the fear of getting hurt or betrayed by others even by those that shows a nice and harmless face. Another reason is the lack of tolerance for critique. Swedes are really bad at accepting criticism. Everybody think that he is perfect and nothing left for improvement so it anybody criticize them, it means that he just wants to take them down without any reason.
