(There are no subs but it's a normal .swf that you can download and then find subs for and watch it in VLC or whatever. I didn't watch that version but I have some subs I can upload to rapidshare or something if needed.)

On to the short, this is a pretty dark piece that Lukas shot a year before he did FÅ. It's the story of a retired worker who has nothing to occupy his time and nobody to talk to and the result of his increasing desperation. It reminded me a bit of L4E but I don't want to spoil the story by divulging too much.

I'm not sure if this is available anywhere else, maybe the box set? I've almost ordered that a half dozen times but keep hoping against hope that there'll be a 10 year anniversary release or something that isn't letterboxed. Anyway I just thought I'd throw it out there for people to check out since this forum was empty. :)

Not really a fan of this short. But it's nice to see it anyway. If you've seen Tillsamans, one can probably link this film's character with Birger, the sad guy Rolf befriends. It doesn't help also that the same actor acted in it. Hehe. And the one he killed played the hippie mother of Moon, again in Tillsamans.

Interesting fact about this short film, this was a part of the early script of Fucking Amal. This wasn't going to a coming of age love story but a slasher flick :o . The story of Agnes and Elin was just a sub plot instead of the whole Film. It was really about Elin and Jessica finding out that their neighbour was a serial killer. I would love to read a early draft of that script.

This is an enjoyable enough short, pretty dark compared to Moodyssons first two films.

I'm glad Fucking Åmål didn't come out as a slasher flick. :shock:
Who knows how the penultimate scene would have ended. :shock: :r :T :P :lol:

I did hear Moodysson mention it when he did a Q and A during his Hole In My Heart tour, it's on the DVD. Elin and Jessica were the main characters, and the old character from Talk was the killer and they go out to prove he's killing young women (I recently found out that Sten Ljunggren was playing the same exact character in Together that he was in Talk, He was really sweet in the film that makes the ending to Together more depressing to me now lol). As the guy below me said, Agnes was just a side character. Definitely that's the holy grail for FA fans to read those early drafts. FA went from a slasher flick to romantic teen drama. The only bits Moodysson admitted to keep in FA were the chats between Elin and Jessica early in the film.

It is but damn I be so excited just to get my hands on that script. It be amazing to see how much Agnes and Elin's romance would have gotten in the script. Also just weird how you go from a serial killer script then to a teen lesbian drama/comedy, boggles the mind.

The story-line really travelled a long way then.
And I'm certainly glad it did. *:)*

It did, but I would have loved to see how much time was given to Agnes and Elin in that script. Cause Moodysson did say the relationship was in it but not the main focus like it became in the finished film. Going from Slasher film to coming of age film shows how much work goes into draft of scripts before they come the finished article.
