Tillsammans (original title)
1h 46min | Comedy, Drama, Romance | 25 August 2000 (Sweden)
It is the 1970s and a group of very different individuals live together as a community. One of the members’ sister, Elisabeth, needs a new place to stay with her children after having had enough of her alcoholic and abusive husband. Elisabeth is neither a socialist nor a feminist nor into the green movement but ends up loving living in the community where they all learn from each other. The film makes a little fun of people with strong ideals and “square” minds whether they be vegans, communists or people who absolutely disgust vegans or socialists. In the end, the message of the film is that people can grow and gain from bonding with each other. It also shows how we need to shape up a little for this to work, either through working on our behavior that affects other people badly (like alcoholism or abuse) or the need to set boundaries and not let other people walk all over oneself.
