Swedish director Roy Andersson (Songs From the Second Floor) made his feature debut with this 1970 drama about a couple of sweet blond teenagers (Rolf Sohlman, Ann-Sofie Kylin) whose delighted exploration of each other contrasts starkly with their elders' angry and disappointed lives. Released domestically as A Love Story but retitled abroad to distinguish it from the Ryan O'Neal-Ali MacGraw blockbuster, this is a surprisingly piquant look at the pains and pleasures of first love, especially given the stunning bleakness of Andersson's later work. In Swedish with subtitles. 115 min.
