Better than Farväl Falkenberg
"Fjorton suger" was one of the most pleasant movie surprises that I've had in my life. The acting and the dialogue in the movie felt so authentic that it was like watching real life and that someone just happened to catch it on film.

Therefore my expectations for "Du & jag" were pretty high. I was definitely not disappointed, but I wasn't blown away either.

"Du & jag" might in some ways be percepted as a sequel to "Fjorton suger". The people depicted are about ten years older than those in "Fjorton suger", but when it comes to love and close relations they are just as clumsy. The directing is once again very documentary-like, with lots of close-ups and shaky camera, the soundtrack is amazing, and the actors are, although unknown to the general audience, extremely talented.

However, the story isn't as focused as in "Fjorton suger". It spans over several years, and even though the final cut is no more than one and a half hours, some of the scenes feel a bit uninspired and out of place. Another downside (and this is my very own opinion) is that not all of the actors speak Scanian this time.

But all in all, "Du & jag" is well worth seeing, in my opinion far superior to the similar "Farväl Falkenberg".
