Before the student riots up the Champs-Elysee, Sweden came out with this film, which 'Describes the difficulties of a radical in a country with no serious problems'. Random questions asked by a young girl to members of the public compares middle-aged middle-class apathy with the social upheavals of the 60s and, with its added explicit sexual content, it was no wonder it was banned. This dvd also includes Sjoman's follow-up, "I Am Curious Blue", which continues Lena's journey of self discovery. find out more...
No Image for INTO ETERNITY
CertificationE Our Rating

The haunting "Into Eternity," about the folly of storing nuclear waste for 100,000 years to make it safe for future generations, is a rare hybrid: an information-packed documentary crossed with an existential art film. In a deceptively low-key manner, Danish filmmaker Michael Madsen has beautifully crafted one of the most provocative movies of the year. - David Lewis, Rotten Tomatoes
