Wickedly humorous and poignant love story between two romantic adolescents experiencing love for the first time.
Audience Reviews for En kärlekshistoria (A Swedish Love Story)
Roy Andersson's celebrated social criticism signature. To me, however, just too many unwanted materials dragging the film down.
The tone is very unusual: on one hand, there's the central story, a sweet and authentic (perhaps slightly idealized) look at young teenage courtship. This is starkly contrasted by the adults, all of whom are bitter, petty and miserable. It's like Bergman doing Endless Love. The constrast is most blatant in the final portion of the film: when the grown-ups are busy bickering and sniping at each other, the young lovers are busy making out in the barn, oblivious to the glimpse of their future selves they could be witnessing. It's not a brilliant film, and the cheese soundtrack dates it badly, but it's pretty interesting.
