Young films from Gothenburg
A few days ago I saw three of the movies made by last year film students at Gothenburg University and I was happy to see their spirit to try and renew the Swedish film. Especially the film "Dark Side" by Emelie Lindblom had a very relevant story and strong conceptual approach in a short paraphrase to an English high-society soap opera. The film uses images from the TV-series to bring forward a story of a swedish young couple. It soon turns into a story of how reality and fiction can be mixed up and the difficulty of judgment in reality compared to a told story which is often simplified and clear. I was really happy to see someone seriously addressing topics concerning our own generation.
