Screwed (orig. Pihalla) is a Finnish drama film, where seventeen year olds Miku and Elias find themselves, and each other, during a summer in the Finnish countryside. Love is not as easy as it seems.
When i red the very banal two-line-plot on IMDb, I thought i will watch a cliché gay summer movie, a typical love story encluding malignant parents, hater society, etc. This movie is nothing like that. Very original and well acted characters (especially the mothers), very nicely written and directed script, very understandable but not cliché situations which are seemingly from the real life (oh those little details!). I have to mention the camera work – photography is just nice. Watch this movie if you want a nice summer evening with thoughts and emotions, but not the overloaded Holywood way. I didn’t regret a moment of it.
