Insanely strong movie about growing up as a girl in the late Swedish 70s, as a daughter to a man who gradually loses his dreams, dignity and ultimately sobriety.
I watched this movie with an ever growing stomach ache. Mikael Persbrandt is amazing as Leif Andersson, an industrial worker with charm and wit, who through the movie degrades ever so slowly, as his daughter Åsa grows up and away.
"Nobody owns me" is the strongest movie about codependency I've ever seen, even better than the novel upon which it's based. It makes me so sad that for this movie to be picked up by the American mainstream audience, you'd have to cast Jack Nicholson as Leif and Jennifer Lawrence as Åsa.
