Review

Tillsammans is Lukas Moodysson's follow-up to his wonderful debut Fucking Åmål, and it captures the same positive warmth, albeit in a slightly more quirky fashion. The movie is basically a spoof on 70s hippie, flower-power communities, and it delivers its satire with humorous affection. Moodysson's dialogue is, here as in Fucking Åmål, brilliantly smooth and his characterizations will relate to anyone growing up in the seventies. Tillsammans blends its wit and satire with a knack for the dramatic, best exemplified in a beautifully acted reunion between a reformed man and his wife that only underlines Moodysson's versatility.
