| Wonderful...
...this swedish movie written by Ulf Stark is a very good one. The author has done quite a few good movies such as "Dårfinkar och Dönickar". "Hunden som log" translation "the dog who smiled" is about this boy Jojjo and his friends a blond male sexmaniac and a girl called Peggy. They travel town...goes to school sometimes, entertain themselves by switching mail between mailboxes and just chill. Jojjo's dog is getting old and one day bites Jojjo that gets really sad. This is quite hard to explain been a while since I saw it and it hasn't been on TV for a while. I think that a lot of people can recognize themselves in this movie, it all about youth. There's a sequence in this movie where Peggy sings this beautiful song that gives me the chills, I can still remember a few words from it.
