The Swedish Theory of Love
First screened in September 2016
Director: Erik Gandini. Documentary that surveys a broad cross-section of Swedish society, repeatedly debunking the myths of its socialist character and collective orientation. Screenplay: Erik Gandini.

Twitter Capsule: Drolly undermines myth of Sweden as an unusually socialized society, with melancholic undertows as well.

VOR:   Gandini casts a wide, loose net, at some cost to total coherence but with some gains, too: never too self-serious, and memorable in its episodes.
