Lukas Moodysson

Fucking Åmål (Show Me Love)

89' - 1998 - Drama, Comedy, Romance - Dialogue: Swedish
Director: Lukas Moodysson With: Alexandra Dahlström, Rebecka Liljeberg, Erica Carlson
Elin and her teenage friends are growing up in Åmål, a sleepy little town in Sweden. This place is just about the most boring place on earth or, as Elin says in her inimitable fashion - “fucking Åmål!” Nothing ever happens until Elin makes an unexpected move - she goes to the wrong party - and her life takes a new direction. Stuck in the midst of two love interests and a hilarious small-town life, Elin tries to get to terms with her real self. A contemporary story about longing, the joy and pain of being in love, the comical and heartbreaking aspects of growing up - and the courage it takes to be different.
