Moodysson definitely created something haunting; imperfect and nonsensical as it may be at times. Is it pretentious? You bet. Is that a bad thing? Not at all.

If someone were to tell me this was the worst film they had ever seen I would'nt argue too much with them. I was pretty absorbed from begnning to end. It doesnt really go anywhere fascinating or do anyting suprising, but the mix of images and sounds does create something poetic and special. If Tarkovsky and Harmony Korine collaborated it would look like this. A strange mix of gender confusion, pop culture disgust and fascination, along a road of consumer emptiness and the need for spiritual fullfilment. My first Lukas Moodysson experience and I wasnt sure what to expect from the Swedish realist director who wiki describes as "an outspoken left wing socialist, feminist, and vegetarian and at the same time a profoundly spiritual Christian." This stream of consciousness movie where the only sound is from a young girls voice almost whispering while an overwieght man and a thin Asian women who seem to represent the same person (when one is not carrying the other on their back "Fando Y Lis" style) is not endearing, entertaining, or profound. I watched it all, and I felt like it was an honest look at the modern world, if a despairingly cliche one at times. If your curious it's on Youtube. I'm just not sure.
