A complete waste of time and attention
Being a young Swede on the left side of the political chart I was delighted to hear about Babylonsjukan. At last, I thought, a movie about me and my friends, the agony of growing up, and living in our destructive, individualistic society. Finally! A movie about me!
Jeeez. Need I say that I was GREATLY disappointed? The pretentious and non-believable dialogue, the horrible acting, the CHARACTERS, o h, m y, g o d! The characters!
Poor little Maja! - I hate my job and I have nowhere to live. I wear crazy scarves wrapped around my hair and I'm always trying to look very weak, mysterious and sensitive in the company of men. Like I'm screaming silently, - Please take care of me you big strong Man you! I''m just a little weak and tiny girl!
And the "Crazy" crowd surrounding her! Oh Lord. - Let's kidnap a nazileader! Yeay! That's how crazy we are! - Look, I have a spontaneous party In the middle of the week! - Hey guys, lets all just hug in a big pile of people! - I have unpaid bills for 28 000 Swedish crowns. I hate the society! - Oh, I'm such a rebel! - I'm speaking slang. I'm born and raised here. My upper middle-class-parents speak without accent, but hey! I'm different. On the Edge of society! Living on the line! So I speak crazy immigrant slang for no apparent reason!
All I can think of while watching this JOKE of a movie is: YOU SPOILED BRATS! GROW UP, GOD DAMNIT!
The fact that this movie got the fundings to get made is so provocative that I lost all the little hope I had left about the industry.
