Oskar, an overlooked and bullied boy, finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl.
Though the film takes place in Blackeberg, a suburb of Stockholm, the film principal photography was shot in Luleå in the north of Sweden, to ensure enough snow and cold weather.
Squeal like a pig. So, squeal.
Throughout the movie there is snow everywhere, but it vanishes later in the movie to re-appear again. When Oskar and Eli emerge from the basement, Eli runs across a bridge and eventually climbs up a tree. As she crosses the bridge, snow can be seen in the background, but as she climbs up in the tree there is no snow anywhere nor any traces of it. Next morning, the snow is back and heavily covering everything.
