Why seen by so few?
I hadn't heard anything about this film before I saw it was to be shown on cable television one late night. Because I liked "White lies" by Mats Arehn, I taped "En förälskelse" and found it real good. I watched "Unfaitful" with Richard Gere some weeks ago, but found "En förälskelse" better and more realistic. It shows how destructive and insane unfaithfulness can be. But it shows good sides too and the film expresses the human longing for true love very well. The actors are doing a very good job and I really would like to see much more films with Nina Gunke. Though the film might seem quite dark, I found some optimistic, liberating sparks. For example when Anna says: "This is the first time I do something my father would have disapproved of." And when Anna says, like she really means it, to her mother: "I do this, not because you say so, but because I want to!" Like "Unfaithful" this film has some unexpected twists and also kind of an open ending. And the ending in "En förälskelse" creates a twist of longing in my stomach: "Let it be!"
