Lukas Moodysson, 2013
Forget the greying heritage tours, the spirit of punk is alive and well in this riotous Swedish romp about two tweenage girls who belatedly embrace anarchy in early 1980s Stockholm.
Thoughtful, bespectacled Bobo and breathless, pixieish Klara take on the oppressive forces of parents, peers and PE with anthems like “Hate the Sport”, recruiting a Christian guitarist along the way.
Director Lukas Moodysson recaptures the youthful verve of his early hits (Show me Love, Together), eliciting such effervescence from his young cast that the whole thing fizzes from start to finish like an exploding can of cola.
