Sweden is more than idyllic red cottages and affordable furniture in flat packages. Today it is also a country with youth unemployment so massive that hundreds of thousands of young Swedes see no other option than to move across the border, to Norway – in the hopes of finding work cleaning toilets, serving food and sweeping litter off the Oslo sidewalks. Svenskjävel (Underdog), the debut feature film of writer/director Ronnie Sandahl, is an unexpected love story set against the backdrop of a new Scandinavian reality.
