A Hole In My Heart (Ett hål i mitt hjärta)

Sweden 2004

Details IMDB

Seen 20 April 2014

Ratings from other sources
IMDB 4.6/10

In a decrypt apartment, a young man watches as his father and a friend shoot an amateur porn film. Issues of morality, reality TV and friendship are explored

My ratings 5.0/10

My impressions:

Some might say it is a masterpiece while others think it is trash, exploitative and degrading. Despite the divergent views, the story does convey a sense of pathos and lost among those on the fringe.

They do have their own desires and dreams but it is a different world entirely from the norm. Friendship, love and that longing for human company is raw. Not everyone would agree with the way the director helms the story. Some parts are disgusting to our sensibilities.

Tread with caution.
