Directed by Ruben Östlund

Sweden 2008 98 mins.

In this brilliant comedy of Swedish manners, Östlund offers five inter-set stories in which respect for authority is challenged. Whether focused on a famous actress unwilling to admit guilt or teens exploring their sexuality via webcam, the film’s segments pose questions about group mentality and social influences. Tensions mount as each character is pressed to take a stand or accept responsibility. Audience Award, Stockholm Film Festival. “A challenging and intelligent Swedish drama that still raises laughs.”—Empire.
