Ever since his debut was heralded as "a young master's first masterpiece" by none other than Ingmar Bergman, director Lukas Moodysson has been hailed internationally as one of Sweden's greatest filmmaking talents, delighting and confounding audiences in equal measure. Available together for the first time, Moodysson's eclectic filmography can now be appreciated as the work of a singular filmmaking voice, as avowedly uncompromising and unabashedly political as it is keenly observed, deeply felt and frequently hilarious. Moodysson's first film, Fucking Åmål (released overseas as Show Me Love), was quickly heralded as a new queer cinema touchstone and one of the most authentic portrayals of youthful relationships on film. He swiftly followed this with the bittersweet, satirical 1970s-set Together, in which the inhabitants of a commune try to reconcile their ideals with their hearts' desires. Having made a name for himself as the new master of tragicomic, feelgood humanism, Moodysson suddenly frustrated expectations with a trio of startlingly confrontational works: the hauntingly bleak Lilya 4-ever, the abrasive and semi-improvised A Hole in My Heart and the avant-garde Container, narrated in its English version by Jena Malone (Donnie Darko). After making his mainstream English-language debut with the expansive Mammoth, starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Michelle Williams, Moodysson returned to his roots with We Are The Best! (based on a graphic novel by his wife and 'consigliere' Coco), the charming and funny tale of three schoolgirls starting a punk band in early-1980s Stockholm.

Press Quotes

Sweden's most praised filmmaker since Ingmar Bergman

     —Dave Kehr, The New York Times

The unpatronizing way their growing pains are portrayed, while not ever losing a sense of perspective and humor is a key element of what makes [Moodysson's films] so beguiling

     —Jessica Kiang, IndieWire

It just so happens that Lukas Moodysson is one of the world's most underrated and under-discussed [directors]

     —Joshua Brunsting, CriterionCast.com

You would assume that the surest way to hobble a young Swedish film-maker is to label him 'the new Bergman'. Fortunately, Lukas Moodysson seems immune to such pressure. Heartfelt and uncompromising, Moodysson treads his own path

     —The Guardian

If you're unacquainted with Lukas Moodysson, this is a fantastic way to get a handle on his somewhat amazingly variant output. Highly recommended.

     —JEFFREY KAUFFMAN, Blu-ray.com

The Lukas Moodysson Collection is nothing short of momentous, and it’s sure to be remembered as of the most impressive home video releases of 2023.

     —Derek Smith, Slant Magazine
