Savage by Martin Jern, Emil Larsson

Swedish tale with no hope for youngsters in the cursed community that only has one church, one night club, one bar and numerous young people with no future.

It’s a bitter story which is surprisingly universal and brings to mind the recent riots in London. Mainly because it is a portrait of young people who living in the consumerist society cannot find their place in the world. Partly because they refuse the uniform of a 9 to 5 job, partly because they have either no support from their parents or because their parents live in a parallel intelectual and existential vacuum.

Painful and not really shocking unfortunately. A very sad vision of contemporary world.
