(Swedish language film with English subtitles)
One of the best-loved European films of the last three decades (it was Oscar-nominated twice, and won the BAFTA and Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film), Lasse Hallstroms international breakthrough is set in late 1950s Sweden and stars Anton Glanzelius as twelve-year-old Ingemar, a mischievous scamp who is sent away to a rural town to live with his uncle and aunt after his terminally ill mother can no longer cope. There, he bonds with various eccentric characters, including the tomboyish Saga (who beats him at boxing) and old Mr Arvidsson, whose favourite reading matter is his beloved lingerie catalogue. While negotiating both teenage growing pains and assorted personal tragedies, Ingemars life has its ups and downs, but he retains his winningly cheerful outlook by constantly reminding himself that it could be worse he could be Laika the Soviet space dog, blasted into the stratosphere never to be seen again.
