This is Alexis Almströms feature film debut as a director and it doesn't show at all. It's a movie that rely on actors and the inner workings of the characters, rather than having a a plot driven story. The real stand out is Hedda Stiernstedt who is amazing and it's very clear that she also elevates the actors around her. I would absolutely recommend this movie.
Chasing Amy (1997)I would say a master piece

Kevin Smiths third movie (following "Clerks" and "Mallrats") is in my opinion one of the best movies ever made. Sure you can argue that the settings are cheap, the dialog somewhat obscene and script ridiculous. But that's just at first glance. Sure, if you look at this movie with the conviction that this is just another romantic comedy with a couple of twists, it will probably go by you as an decent movie you can watch on a boring Friday night. But, if you read between the lines and think about what this story is telling you, it becomes a true inspiration. Basically a movie about misplaced affections, hang ups and the judgmental people all around us, this movie light a beacon and points out some of the most important stuffs in life.
