  • A Swedish Love Story

    1970. Sweden. Directed by Roy Andersson. With Ann-Sofie Kylin, Rolf Sohlman, Anita Lindblom. Andersson’s first feature, his thesis film at the Swedish Film Institute, was a great critical and popular success in his home country. With the gorgeous Swedish summer as a backdrop, the film portrays the pure love that arises between the daughter of a refrigerator salesman and the son of a car mechanic, offering a glimpse into the lives and homes of the people of the Swedish Social Democracy during its heyday. Andersson’s debut is a typically stirring mélange of comedy and melancholy, the quotidian and the absurd. In Swedish; English subtitles. 119 min.
