My Life as a Dog
Directed by Lasse Hallstrom
Starring Anton Glanzelius, Tomas von Bromssen, Anki Liden, Melinda Kinnaman

in Swedish with English subtitles

In 1950s Sweden, two brothers relentlessly squabble, fight and prank each other.

When their mother becomes ill, they are separated and sent to live with different relatives.

Ingemar spends a summer with his uncle in a rural town populated by eccentric oddballs.

But it could be worse; at least he’s not Laika, the dog launched into space.

“A coming-of-age story with uncommon depth and sensitivity, My Life as a Dog is sweet, sincere, and utterly charming.”

Based on a semi-autobiographical novel by Reidar Jonsson, this quirky and funny film was a breakout hit.

Winner of prizes for best film and actor from the Swedish Film Institute, awards for its child actors and accolades as a family film, and numerous awards for best foreign language film.

Nominated for Academy Awards for best director and writing
