We got a box with Roy Andersson films and started with the oldest one. Roy Andersson got known for his extremely slow and absurdistic films, but this teenage lovestory is pretty straightforward.
The just-fifteen Pär and the beautiful big-eyed, short skirted and almost-fourteen Annika fall in love. This does initially not go too smoothly, but soon things are a-okay and they even spend a weekend with both families. Like I said, the film is pretty straightforward with no unexpected storylines or filming. Towards the end, with the family weekend, the film forshadows later Scandinavian films such as “Festen” a little.
