Film – Quick Thoughts: Lilya 4-Ever

Lilya 4-Ever
Lilya 4-Ever, directed by Lukas Moodysson
Written by: Lukas Moodysson
Starring: Oksana Akinshina, Artyom Bogucharskiy
My rating: 4 of 5

My seventh film of 2012 was Lilya 4-Ever, recommended by a Russian friend who used to live in Estonia, where the film is set. It’s a very good film but really not a happy one, and reminds me of Grave of the Fireflies or 4 Months, 3 Weeks and Two Days. Lilya is used by pretty much everybody she trusts, always hopeful but always disappointed. Oksana Akinsjina and Artyom Bogucharskiy do great jobs with difficult roles.
