Monica and Lars, two youths in dead-end jobs, fall in love and decide to leave their messy lives behind, and spend the summer together. They take a boat to a remote area, and have spend romantic nights under the stars. However, things soon start to turn sour when they run out of food, and worse still, when they return to their home town to begin a bog-standard life of suburban malcontent.


better than most Bergman films and more approachable for the average person, 1 November 2005 Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida I've seen a lot of Bergman's films. In my mind, I put them in one of two categories--those that are about death and angst and are prone to causing depression in the viewer, and the rest of his films. This film, though rather somber and sad, is downright ecstatic compared to his later films. There is a tendency for SOME to view these less depressing films as lesser Bergman pictures, but I think this is a big mistake.Monika is an excellent film. It is thought-provoking portrait of an immature young woman who is so desperate to escape her home life that she tries to grow up too quickly--jumping headlong into a relationship that skips all the normal niceties and becomes sexually intimate. Like many teens, she and her boyfriend think they can overcome all their obstacles (such as age, immaturity and lack of jobs) and everything will just "work out". Thankfully, the writers showed what REALLY would happen in a case like this--initial infatuation and delirium followed by reality, then boredom and ultimate disaster.Despite a little bit of nudity, this would be a fantastic film to show any teen who thinks they know everything and is jumping headlong into a serious and intense relationship before they are emotionally ready.
