Tillsammans = Together by Lukas Moodysson( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in Swedish and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tillsammans, ('Together' in English), is a commune in the heart of Stockholm, still going strong in 1975, long after most members of youth culture have abandoned their notions of free love, harmoniously integrated extended families, and naive political idealism in favor of jobs, discos, and TV sitcoms. The commune's 'leader' is sweet, conflict-avoiding Goran. The arrival of his conventional, middle-class sister Elisabeth, (towing 10-year-old Stefan and shy, awkward 13-year-old Eva) disrupts the fragile ecosystem of the commune. The commune also has to deal with Elizabeth's abusive alcoholic husband Rolf, who is a jerk, but somewhat redeemed by his discovery that being separated from his family is painful. Meanwhile, Stefan and Eva's bourgeois attitudes infect the other children with the longing for the evils of television, meat, and new clothes. 'Together' may have set ideals for themselves too lofty for any human to achieve, yet great value lies in their attempt to enact a principle of ancient vintage: the one that says an unexamined life is not worth living

The red chapel( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combining the muckraking spirit of Michael Moore with the confrontational comedy of Borat, The Red Chapel is a one-of-a-kind documentary that reveals the injustices of North Korea with a hilariously dark wit ... a trio of Danish comedians, who call themselves "The Red Chapel", pretend to be regime sympathizers and mount an absurd variety show in Pyongyang. This stunt is led by the acerbic director Mads Brügger, and assisted by Simon Jul and Jacob Nossell, two performers of South Korean descent. Constantly shadowed by their guide, Mrs. Pak, they fake allegiance to Kim Jong-il and hope for "One Korea." Only Jacob is allowed to speak his mind. Suffering from cerebral palsy, his halting speech is impossible to translate, so he insults his socialist hosts and receives smiles in return ... an unconventional, hilarious and damning peek into a totalitarian nightmare."--Container
