GwenKillerby: A perfectly standard youth film, yet, it's so well made and the cast is acting so well, it's evolves to something special. Nice to see it is not zu feige to address lesbian love with 15 year old actresses, their age at the time of shooting.
oliver_twist: a great movie, yes. it's somehow promoting the Ketogenic Diet which is worthy of promoting. This is about a simple, happy family who suddenly is challenged by fate. The youngest son is starting to have seizures and receives not-so-sure & painful anti-epileptic treatments. Well, we can't blame the doctors, just doing their job.
spnkng: Film take-up of the stage musical Chess by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulveaus.
Fantastic music and interesting story about love, the cold war and the opression and tyranny of the soviet regime as late as in the 80´s.
spnkng: The 1996 swedish advent calendar. Humorous, touching and cute story about the Olsson family, the two castle ghosts, two thievs, some crazy elves and a secret about the Count of the castle hidden for centruies.
You must watch this one!
