FUCKING AMAL TWENTY YEARS AGO

We are fast approaching the 20th anniversary of the canon story of FA/SML. Of course there was no Friday 27th of March in 1998 (Agnes birthday) it was 'dramatic licence' so the story could fit around 'Walpurgis Eve' when Papa Olof can take time off work to have his heart-to-heart with Agnes.

Nonetheless it is a key marker. I have put foward this little thread as a commemoration so anyone can post their all-time favourite stills, screenshots, clips, pics etc from that time.

It was twenty years ago today.....
Hmmm. Someone should write a song. :lol:

Great idea Snapsie. *:)*

Always one of my favourites.
I'm sure I have a few more tucked away somewhere too. :roll:

The crew get a less than enthusiastic welcome from the local press and Council

FUCKING JÄVLA KUK_ÅMÅL!

Find out how the film nearly got landed with this title etc. Fascinating interview with Lukas by Fredrik Sahlin about 'the making of' from 12 Aug 1998.
Best way to see it in English is to copy this URL and paste it into the left-hand box of Swedish > English on Google Translate:

Thanks, I didn't know you could do that.
I remember spending ages copying and pasting a few lines at a time. :T :oops: :lol:

Lovely Snaps.
I've only part-read it this time so far, but I'll complete it soon for sure.


Question: Has anyone heard any more about the "mythical" release of an HD version of FÅ?
It's already been a year since it premiered in Stockholm but I haven't seen a word about a DVD re-release. Not happy. *:|*

Indeed you are right. Walpurgis Eve is traditionally on 30 April.

Unfortunately the only copies are with svenskfiminstitutet FOR HIRE to schools, festivals etc. and it's pricey *:|* I think the only way you would get a hire is to get some buddies round for a few tinnies - maybe call yourselved the Adelaide Film and Fine Arts Appreciation Society or something :T

Bugger. That's dashed a lot of hopes. *:|*

Mind you, I can scribble a pretty fair begging letter when I get inspired.
I wonder if they'd be susceptible. :? :P


Damned superglue again eh? :roll: *:)* :lol:

That's fairly ridiculous. Surely they should be giving it a proper HD release, esp this year of all years? Seems like a pretty daft business decision otherwise. :roll:

I sent an email to filminstitutet.se, 5th jule 2017

You recently made a new version of the digitized movie. I have seen the trailer and it is very good. And I want to buy it soon, although I do not know where to get it. They, as I am very grateful that you have digitalized.

This movie is one of the few that lasts a long time and I would like to thank the work of people from the forum "fucking-amal.com" as people who like others have kept their minds up to now and I think it would be good , As a thank-you to what they want most, what's new, for example, posting unpublished works and wanting to see, for example, scenes that were not used in the movie, or material used in The scenes that have been kept.
Thanks for everything
Santi

and them answer me:

Dear Santi,
I’m glad that you found out about our restoration. At the moment we only have the film on dcp, för digital cinema screenings. The producer is working on releasing the film for streaming and dvd, and I hope we will have news on this during the fall. So keep an eye out for more information then!
Best regards,

Hmmm, let me think. :T
That would have been 6 months ago but I haven't found anything about a dvd on their site.

Does anyone have any further news? :?

(Before we have to send in the dog squad.) :x :P
