Swedish Cinema

Jonas Karlsson & Johanna Sällström in His and Hers

…and for those of you completely unfamiliar with Swedish cinema, here are a few recommendations that I tweeted about some time back:

My idea of Swedish awesomeness is Mikael Persbrandt – excellent, hot actor! See Day and Night by Danish director Simon Staho (if you can handle dark and emotional).

and Jonas Karlsson brilliant actor, very moving & entertaining! Watch His and Hers/Making Babies & Miffo by Daniel Lind Lagerlöf.

For great comedy and a very Swedish feel go for directors Måns Herngren & Hannes Holm (Shit Happens, Every Other Week, Adam & Eva).

Another absolutely brilliant Swedish award-winning director is Lukas Moodysson (Fucking Åmål, Together, Lilja 4-ever).

Låt den rätte komma in (Let The Right One In) by Tomas Alfredson is well worth a watch too.

A kids’ movie definitely worth watching is Ronia: The Robber’s Daughter (Ronja Rövardotter), written by Astrid Lindgren and directed by Tage Daniesson.
