A SWEDISH LOVE STORY (En kärlekshistoria)
Roy Andersson, 1970. 115 min. Sweden.
In Swedish with English subtitles.
Fifteen year-old Pär (Rolf Sohlman) and fourteen year-old Annika (Ann-Sofie Kylin) fall in love... around them swirl parents, friends, and rivals – a series of microcosms that evoke a society apparently permissive, but secretly in tatters. Against the background of their developing romance, the thwarted emotions of the older generation are shown with a dramatic sense of disappointment and sympathetic insight. A major international hit when it was first released, this stunningly photographed portrait of Swedish life revels in the small moments that reveal bigger truths. This classic of world cinema is unavailable on DVD in the US, so we will be presenting a new HD version personally sent by director Roy Andersson.
“A gorgeous tale of teenage romance that manages to be both realistic and lyrical.”
