people living in the Swedish backyard and their life and obsessions
First of all I have to say that i enjoyed watching PIV, there are some hilarious things in it. but to appreciate it fully you should speak Swedish and preferably have a good knowledge of skånska(territorial accent). though there are a couple of things that left my with a bad feeling and more than one question. basically i think that Piv will get my vote depending on what premises it was created. Who made it and why did they make it?

the characters a tragic, at least looked upon from an outsider perspective. they are not "normal", they have weird obsessions and don't always come out as overly bright. still, I can't decide if the movie was made with love and respect for them, or just for a good laugh.

from the cult followers the later seems to be why it has been so appreciated. And then it just seem very condescending and a way fore cosmopolitan people to make fun of the lower classes of society. and somehow i think that's the case. also considering the fact that the filmmakers voice is of a different sociolect( don't know if thats the correct term in English), ads to that. some weird editing make them seem more stupid than necessary and all this leads up to a questionable motif for the making of PIV.

No, unless the filmmakers give a reasonable answer to why the made PIV I can not approve of it.
