I did not quite get Barnens O – it is one of the weirdest ones I have watched. The soundtrack was quite unusual as well – written and performed by Jean Michel Jarre – it makes the movie weirder than it was. I have to admit that I was almost going to change it and watch another one instead –at times the movie seemed plain dumb to me, or boring – or confusing. There are quite a few sexual references in that movie – trough they too are kind of messed up .
Probably the only phrase that I will remember out of it is going to be “When you are alone, you can control things “– and “I will show them “- or something like that .The boy (Tomas Fryk) in that movie was obsessed with the idea of not growing up – “the last summer as a child “he thought once – and he sure lived it to the max. Swedish movies tend to be a bit weird – and I have seen more quite a few of them – but at the same time watching them is just a different experience I guess. Barens 0 is one of the most popular Swedish movies ( judging from the goodle trends about it). At the same time the movie can be classified as coming of age movie and as it truly shows the development – both physical and mental of the young actor. So if you have few hours to spare you can watch this movie
– but you won`t miss much if you don`t.
