Lukas Moodysson's third feature, following 'Show Me Love' and 'Together', is a touching and tender insight into the life of Lilya, a chirpy girl of sixteen who lives in a poor suburb somewhere in the former Soviet Union. Lilya's mother has emigrated to America in search of a life, and when she doesn't send for her, Lilya realises after a time she has been abandoned. Left alone and broke, Lilya strikes up a friendship with local 11 year old boy Volodya, himself an outcast. Through their similar circumstances they fantasise of a life elsewhere. Moodysson's script is observant of the hopes and dreams of Lilya and Volodya, but is realistic about the world they live in. A powerful and emotional viewing experience.
