AICN rewiews swedish film! holy crap!

it´s very rare these days that SWEDISH FILMS gets any serious international press coverage. so when I see that one of the worlds, if not THE most important internet film news site, AIN`T IT COOL NEWS has a review of the film "LET THE RIGHT ONE COME IN", then I get goose-bumps.

I feel very strongly that Swedish cinema is in a strong phase of re-awakening. older structural tabus of how to make films and why, and what they´re about, are being torn down. just the very notion of a genre based film getting any state-funded support and mainstream attention would have been a ridiculous notion just a handfull of years ago. who knows - perhaps we can look forward to some groundbreaking Swedish science-fiction as well...?
