Gottsunda is a district in Uppsala, Sweden, where almost half of the inhabitants are of foreign origin, with most of the population living in public housing projects - and many of them, not only because of their foreign origin but also because of poor economic and housing conditions as well as frequent power failure, feel disenfranchised and abandoned by Sweden as such. So it's no wonder that especially among the young, subculture spreads like wildfire and into all direction, something most vividly demonstrated in the almost ritualistic burning cars that pop up each summer.

Under Gottsunda follows several youths of the region, including two boys who want to leave behind society altogether, cruising around in their longboards, preferably leading a big gang (they never attract), two girls who get high all the time who want to turn their backs on everything altogether and live under the trees, feeding on the roots, a Macedonian father who teaches his daughter for the time he'll no longer be there, in a rather martial way, and two guys teaching a military form of martial arts to those interested - and sometimes going too far in their demonstrations -, two Palestinian teens building slingshots out of stolen bicycle tires to channel their frustrations, and the like.


Now Under Gottsunda could have easily become a complete disaster had it tried to hammer home a message, wallowed in clichées of the disenfranchised, gone over the top is political correctness, or just tried to depress the heck out of the audience with its sad content - and none of this is true for the movie, it light-footedly tells its at best loosely connected stories, with some humour even in the darkest episodes, it doesn't try to change the world, doesn't judge or try too eagerly to take sides, and it's filmed in bright and friendly colours. The outcome is a film that features a very healthy, engaging, and at times almost poetic approach to its subject and characters thanks also to its beautiful camerawork and rather authentic cast. An unusual, but because of that also very likeable movie!
