Bergström is fascinated by young adults but doesn't know how to portray them
20 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Much like "Holy Mess" this movie shares Bergströms basic misunderstanding of young peoples perspective on modern society and undeserved emotional moments. Where her previous film "Holy Mess" tries to play towards the diversity of todays Sweden and failing at doing so this film instead tries to approach the tough young adult years and failing to do so.

The young adult in this movie are not written in any credible manner. No twenty something has casually used the term "down with the boogie" in at least forty years. The pitch black back stories of seemingly every character is also handled embarrassingly without either depth or nuance and the way the characters overcome their issues is far from believable. Rather I'd argue that it's problematic how haphazardly psychological trauma is depicted and treated in this movie.

Okay, so the movie is problematic, but is it entertaining? Sure. Partly. But only in the way that a bad movie is. I laughed at how out of touch the script is with young adults, I laughed at how the movie treated the sexuality at one of its characters and I sure laughed when a bike crashed with a pig. But none of those moments were supposed to be funny. There were supposed to be touching, scary, dramatic and they are not.

Beyond all of this the movie relies too much on flashbacks accompanied with a poorly chosen camera filter and a very, very heavy handed symbolism.
