Movie review: the Unexpected friendship between the swedes and the roma community in To the land of dreams

”Fucking Leeds!” cries out the girls and giving the finger out over the bay, sitting high up on the loading dock to an abandoned factory.

Around the Sabina and Elin circles Victor Lindgren's debut feature, an expanded, but hardly in-depth version of his short film ”Den blomstertid nu kommer” (2016).

avstampen is the conclusion of the church where Elin sings sommarpsalmen for a complete assembly. Sabina listens tucked away in the darkness at the door of the church. She is a Romanian rom, who has come to Leeds, together with his brothers look for a job.

Elin and Sabina becomes one of Holmsund odd vänpar.

not everyone finds himself in Holmsund is marked by an occasionally annoying shaky hand-held camera, an initial voice that tells a lurking insanity and well-written music, signed Anders Lind, who turn, varies and stretches in minor on despite well-known hopeful noises.

may represent a kind of adventurous frihetlighet and survivability in contemporary american cinema, by Jonas Selberg competition the film directed by ”Sophelikoptern” (2016) as the most successful example.

Victor Lindgren wants to embrace much more than the friendship between Elin and Sabina. He suggests the destruction of the environment in the remains of the defunct sawmill, and Obbolas nearby pulp mill. He takes the roma working in the repair shops and pizzerias. He comments suspicion and reluctant acceptance, not least by the headmaster (Ingrid nyström's) sommartal: ”We have it well still good!”

Mainly the still of Sabina and Elin, and their friendship, the shade of each group deep missing after their mothers. Sabinas is left in Romania. Elin has been left alone with a to the insanity limit despondent father after the mother's suicide.

the Other remains mysteriously raised in the seemingly casual episodes, like when the principal goes on the hunt for björngropar in the forest or with their feet immersed in the myrvattnet surprised by the Elin.

If this president had wanted to know much more.

But it is as if the ångestladdade the silence and the unspoken is Victor Lindgren's the actual main point, whether it's for Elin's dad and his oförlösta sorrow or Sabinas fictional conversation with my mother in Romania.

If it is really enough for a feature film may be up to each and every one.

See more. Three other films about young girls ' operations: ”Fucking Åmål” (1998), ”Rosetta” (1999) and ”Tomboy” (2011).
