Lukas Moodysson at IFFR
The blossoming love between two girls in a boring Swedish village: Elin, the most popular girl in the class, and the stiff Agnes. In Åmal, everyone wants to be different, but not too different. One of the greatest surprises of the last year.
Hilarious scenes in a Swedish commune in the 1970s. Both a dramatic and satirical picture of a culture in which sex, joints and organic vegetables are freely shared.
In Lukas (Fucking Åmål, Together) Moodysson's darkest drama so far, a naïve Russian girl finds herself in the world of loverboys and prostitution. A clash between innocence and harsh reality.
A Hole in my Heart
Claustrophobic study of a weekend making amateur porn. A teenage son listens to loud music in his room, while father and his two "stars" slide beyond every boundary of respectability. Moodysson's most radical film so far is a grotesque tragedy and angry pamphlet in one.
Hypnotic experiment in grubby black & white: Moodysson keeps getting more radical. Sombre and intractable, yet also intelligent and brimming with ideas that will reverberate for a long time. On the soundtrack, a monologue about war, sex, celebrity culture, etc. The pictures show an autistic woman captured in a male body and her career.
Closing Film: We Are the Best!
Latest film by Swedish director and master provocateur Lukas Moodysson (Fucking Åmål, Mammoth) is based on a comic book by his wife Coco. About teenage girls Bobo, Klara and Hevig who start a punk band in Stockholm in 1982 without being able to play any instruments. Sweet, charming, surprisingly cheerful and real punk.
