One of the ways I love to learn a language is watching movies in that language. Movies from that country. Not only is it easy practice, but you a glimpse into the culture as well. And Swedish is no different.


Which is why I’m offering someone the chance to win a copy of the Swedish film, Evil, on DVD!

Evil is more drama than thriller Swedish film about a boy who is given the final chance to “straighten up” and finish his education at a boarding school. However he is met with the school bullies, and begins questioning when violence is “evil”. Check out our full review of the film!

    Män som hatar kvinnor. Read the books first, then saw the original movie. Stunning shots of Sweden coupled with a well produced adaptation. I have yet to see the American version…

    My favourite Swedish movie is “On the loose” from 1984 – because EUROPE, the ones that made me a Swedish freak are starring in it and also made the music for it ! ;))))

    I have never actually watched an ‘actual’ Swedish film but a while ago I watched a movie that I can was originally Swedish. It was called Let Me In… quite a creepy vampire flick that had quite an effect on me! (I hope it was originally Swedish… I’ll be so embarrassed if not lol!)
