A Swedish film "Together" (Tillsammans) is the type of comedies I like. It's funny because its hilarious characters, especially how they talk to each other.
Set in the 70s, a bunch socialist hippies living in a commune and some of them have "open marriage/relationship," which really means that the wife can scream to her orgasm with another Marxist while her nicest husband and other kids listening next room. Another woman becomes lesbian because of her belief, not because her desire to woman, and she pretty much seduces any housewives walking into the door. She also walks around without wearing anything below her waist because she needs some air in that area. And there are many others...
None of these characters are perfect, but none of them are simple. Almost all of them are original and funny. We might think they are crazy, but that might be just what it's like in the 70s, especially in that house.
It's one of the funniest films I have seen lately.
My rating: 8 out of 10.
