The Films of Roy Andersson: A Swedish Love Story

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. —Museum of Arts and Design
