113 min, 35mm
A tale of youthful optimism and hope flourishing in the face of the compromises of adult life and its shipwrecked dreams, Roy Andersson’s debut feature A Swedish Love Story made him a talent to watch in the early 1970s. Following the story of two fifteen-year-olds, A Swedish Love Story presents an all-too-real look at the first time attraction becomes love in a person’s life. With stellar performances, this coming-of-age tale explores how politics and class struggles shape the world around us, and also that universality of love creates its own personal world outside of the pressures of everyday.
