Coming of age satire, and much more
Review of Bert — Den siste oskulden / Bert — The Last Virginá(1995) movie, by Stefan Stenudd
Society outside of Bert's tiny teen troubles, also shows itself to be increasingly odd, almost surreal. And what shows on the TV set in the family living room is just as weird, upon examination.
It's a crazy world, simply, where Bert seems to be the only sane person — and he's not that very sane, either. In this amusement park of a suburb environment, with characters as grotesque as if seen through cracked lenses, the movie still manages to make some clever observations about boys, girls, sexual urges and anxieties, and all.
