Directed by Roy Andersson

Sweden 1970 119 mins.

Andersson’s first feature, his thesis project at the Swedish Film Institute, was a great critical and popular success in his home country. With the gorgeous Swedish summer as a backdrop, the film portrays the pure love that arises between the daughter of a refrigerator salesman and the son of a car mechanic, offering a glimpse into the lives and homes of the people of the Swedish Social Democracy during its heyday. Andersson’s debut is a typically stirring mélange of comedy and melancholy, the ordinary and the absurd. Best Film, Swedish Guldbagge Awards, the top recognition in Sweden.
