The box office hit of the year in Sweden, “Fucking Åmål” is going to be published as a book. Soundtrack CD is also coming soon. One of the songs heard on the movie is Gyllene Tider’s “När vi två blir en”. Hopefully it will be on the soundtrack album!

The movie is director Lukas Moodysson’s debut film. “Fucking Åmål” was recently shown in America with a more conservative name “Show Me Love”.

Gyllene Tider’s “När vi två blir en” is played in a new Swedish film “Fucking Åmål”. The film is nominated for the next year’s Academy Award for the best foreign film. I’ve heard that the movie is really great. Unfortunately there’s no soundtrack album for the film.
