Dom kallar oss mods (1968)
Slice-of-life storyteling about highly irritating, unresponsible, self-destructive, kick-seeking outsider youth from dysfunctional families – true misfits with aimlessness as lifestyle, hellbent on instant gratification. And also a tender portrait of strained friendship.
Poses the usual questions raised by many controversial documentaries – do we crave manipulation or truth, is this staged or authentic?
Refreshingly little blamethrowing. Open and somewhat ominous ending, unknowingly and strongly foreboding the two sequels, »Ett anständigt liv« and »Det sociala arvet«. The complete trilogy would absolutely have been in my book as a single entry.
