The world’s not meant for lonely people

Posted in Film by downwithprince on October 19, 2010

Disappointment, loneliness and inability to communicate are consistent traits of the adult world in “En kärlekshistoria” (A Swedish Love Story) by Roy Andersson. The film depicts two innocent and yet unspoiled teenagers’ tentative steps towards adulthood. As their heedless love grows, they manage to rise above the clouds of despair created by their parents who are lost in the everyday routine failing to take the young couple seriously. In their difficulties to express their feelings in words, we truly get to see that cinema is about capturing what words cannot describe.
