Not quite sure where this one was going Santi. :?

If it was to ask who we preferred out of Alex or Bex, well.....

I first fell in love with Agnes when I saw her looking at Elin in the school hallway.
By the end of the film I loved them both equally.

As for Alex and Bex.... the same applies.
I have the deepest admiration for each of them and for what they've achieved so far in their lives.

I wanted to open a debate because I think Alexandra's actuation compared with Rebecca is very different.
And I did not want anyone fan of Alexandra to feel bad .

Lucas was very lucky to work with Rebecca . These two are the movie .
Alexandra isn't expressive. Only knows head down. Anyone pretty girl, could have done the same role.

In the car, after the kiss, for example, the shy girl is more expressive than the lider girl.

Although in the film Elin blonde must be more beautiful than Agnes.

Agnes wins the beauty, because The real beauty of Agnes is her expression.

The gestures of her face, eyes, lips, moving his head. Nothing to do with Elin.

I think Lukas was very lucky to have found them both.

Bex because she had a remarkably expressive and beautiful face as well as great timing and a superb acting ability.
And Alex because she was not only beautiful but had such a natural gift for acting.
She was also very involved with the script, even to the extent of suggesting the O'boy scene to end the film.
A touch of genius, and all that at just 14 years old.

Already knew that Alexandra was involved in the script and had helped a lot in the movie , but not quite. Scene O'Boy I not know it. I think of it differently of her .

But I remain convinced that acting is so far from Bex . I think prefer to " Jessica " .

The best actress award was only for Bex , perhaps the premium thereof It also included helping Lucas.

I guess it's probably a little unfair to compare their acting ability based on just one film together because so much is dependant on the director's ideas of how the characters should be played.
So I'll stick with my own personal opinion that both are very talented. 8)

Agreed. I think you do tend to focus on Bex a bit more at first, but the more you see it the more you realize just how subtle and smart Alex's performance really is. :D

It is not so .

When Agnes heard saying Elin is in love with her. His face changes so little that is barely visible . But looks happy.

When in the bathroom Agnes replied : If you 're fooling me I will kill you !
Close your eyes a little .

The movements of his lips, he bites them , move them , rotate them , etc.
Her eyes open and close , look up, down , etc ( in Agnes 's room ) .

Alex with his head down movements could move his lips and eyes like Bex, little movements .

Looks like a robot compared to Bex . Without Bex would look good .

We may have to agree to disagree on that one I'm afraid.

Elin looks somewhat embarrassed, unsure, and very vulnerable in case she's wrong.
Exactly what Lukas wanted.

Yes, Elin have a fight inside herself. Don't know what she wants.
Agnes knows what she want.

But I don't talk about this. I talk about the movements of parts of her face. Her face is talking without words. It's so expressive.

And Elin is little expressive, perhaps Lucas said her.

Perhaps if I see others film of Alexandra (I don't have seen no).

What film of Alexandra is better?

None better than Fucking Åmål, but IMdB have a reasonable resumé of what she's done.http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0197164/?ref_=tt_ov_dr

We all have different opinions on the relative merits of her films.
Personally I liked Astro and Fröken Sverige above the others but everyone should make up their own minds on this.
Even the short film "Som kärlek fast på riktigt!" (Like Love But For Real) I thought was excellent.
