Fucking Åmål - Lukas Moodysson (1998)
Agnes is 16 years can't fit in to her small town and hopeless in love with Elin who has a longer way to get in terms with herself.
This is a movie that is beautiful and true - in parts, and in other parts so artificial and out of touch. The dialogue is sometimes so helpless grow up, no kids talk like that. But in some scenes, when Agnes and Elin is alone, the dialogue and filming feel so free.Then it is just touching pureness.
The movie is made in a dogme fashion, with handheld camera, no artificial light, grainy pictures and jump cuts. For the most parts it works.
I like it. The touching moment balancing the cheesy one. Even though the moral of this movie is so-and-so; happiness and end to suppression is not achieved by finding a girl/boy-friend in my book. But in Hollywood it is tangled up in candy floss.
Moodyssons best movie is so fare Lilja 4 ever, where he doesn't try to be so positive and shows life in it's ugliness.
