Show me love

I watched an old DVD yesterday. I saw "Show me love" from Lukas Moodyson with Alexandra Dahlström and Rebecca Liljeström. The film is about a small town in western Sweden, about the kids who live there, about their dreams and how they're desperate to get out. So desperate that they might do anything to make it. The film is, I think, Lukas Moodyson's first and I think his best. The dialogue flows smoothly, the characters are nicely described and when the film is over there is this positive feeling that overwhelms you. Perhaps the movie is more about Lukas' own youth than the kids in the movie. Nevertheless, "Show me love" is one of the true classics of Swedish contemporary films.
