At first I thought Mr Moodysson was purposely trying to destroy his career!
Then I thought he was doing what only the brave do ... after being ranked so highly because of his first 3 beautiful, wonderful and shocking films he's found himself in a position to express himself with greater freedom (and perhaps heartlessness!) and relax in the knowledge that people WILL listen ... why? - because he's Lukas Moodysson of course! In the same sense Coldplay could release and album that is purely banjo and farting noises and it'll probably still go platnium!!
The film itself is B&W filmed (mostly amateur handheld styley). The only sound throughout is the voice of Jena Malone (Donnie Darko's girlfriend!) speaking rather vacantly and consistently.
The images seem rather random and do not create a plot, but instead a concept or frame of mind.
The voice is reciting Mr Moodysson's poetry which covers issues like; beauty, weight, sexuality, war, famine, God, etc. The images then loosely follow these themes as they are covered.
It's a wonderful expression of the pressure of the world today. The weight we all carry, the choices we have, and the crap we are feed and how it's all simply too much! However, I do feel that this is a film that Mr Moodysson should have gotten out of his system in film school, not at the potential pinnacle of his career. But now that it is out of his system I have high hopes for his future (he types with both fingers crossed!).
This is a bad example of Moodysson's brilliance and if you're new to his work please look elsewhere.
If you're already a fan of Mr Moodysson then be warned: This is a full on Art House film and requires a lot of energy and patience.
