a swedish love story 0

my goddaughter, ama, turned me on to this trailer. does she know me, or what?!? i could hardly stand it! the simple, timelessness of the styling and cinematography is -perfection. roy andersson‘s En kärlekshistoria/A Swedish Love Story was released in 1970, but besides the cars, nothing else really dates it. it could easily be a contemporary a.p.c. campaign. the fresh, wholesomeness of tween ‘first love angst’ reminds me of the outsiders or  the virgin suicides -but with even better omni-style styling. really. you can watch some short clips on you tube but i cannot wait to see the whole film and check out other works of swedish filmmaker, roy andersson.

here’s another other non-disney ‘tween’ film i loved.
