fucking åmål (show me love)

Films that embrace the lesbian teenage experience without condescension are rare, and so very necessary. Sure, we've proven that as a society we can ridicule and satirise our teenagers (both gay and straight) and their real and perceived angst, but seldom does a film come along that is sweet without being saccharine and real without being preachy. Fucking Åmål is all this and more.

Every minute that I was watching The Business of Strangers I found myself wanting more than the film was giving me. When the characters were angry, I wanted them to be angrier. When sad, I wanted more anguish. When they were flirting, I wanted them to wind the sexuality up a notch. Everything seemed just not quite enough.
