I just finished watching 'Fucking Amal' (aka 'Show Me Love') for the third time. It's a Swedish movie about two young girls living in a small town. Agnes doesn't have any friends and is constantly being teased at school, and has been in love with the popular girl, Elin, who drinks and parties with an older crowd. Agnes barely registers in Elin's mind, until the night she ends up going to Agnes' birthday party on a whim, and being dared to kiss her. From then on it's a struggle for her to come to terms with the fact that she has feelings for another girl.

Anyway, I saw this movie twice about 5 or 6 years ago, and at that stage my thought pattern ended at "Awesome! They're making out!". Watching it now, it means a lot more to me. Even though it was all in Swedish, having to read the subtitles didn't take away from the quality of the movie, and a lot of the time I felt that the subtitles weren't even entirely necessary. It was less about what was being said and more about the emotion behind it, and both of the actresses did an amazing job at conveying that. Especially my favourite of the two, Alexandra Dahlstrom. Look at the pretty:

What can I say? I have a thing for tomboys.

So anyway, if you're a fan of lesbians and foreign films (or even just lesbians - I don't normally like foreign films) then I would recommend Fucking Amal. It's beautiful.
