All We Own
A profound but destructive friendship between three outsiders in Stockholm becomes a raw and uncompromising film by the girl in the group.
They are friends forever. Emily and her friends Johan and the somewhat older Curtis, who have all met randomly in Stockholm. What they all have in common is the thing they all have too much of. Too many feelings, too much chaos, too much addiction. Curtis and Johan seek refuge in hard drugs. Emily herself tries to give her life - and their chaotic friendship - a form by making a film that has room for it all. It makes sense that it is raw, fragmentary and uncompromising. Like pages in a diary written on wrinkled paper, 'All We Own' is as emotionally in-your-face as it is visually expressive. Emily spares neither herself nor her two friends, but the bond between them is unbreakable in that inexplicable way that only a deep and destructive friendship can be. A debut film of the rare kind, and a film that is above explaining everything through diagnoses.
