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
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".
