The three movies look good on Blu-ray. Yes, ”****ing Åmål” is a bit problematic but I have compared it to the old DVD and it still is a huge upgrade.

”Tillsammans” and ”Lilja 4-ever” both look very good.

”Tillsammans” have excellent grading with warm and striking colours. The movie looks like it was shot in the 70s or 80s (in a good way).

”Lilja 4-ever” has more of a muted look to it. Detail is very good and the grain is handled fine.

I recently also watched ”Vi är bäst”, but that was the older release 1080p. I wonder how the new 1080i version is in comparison?

Unfortunately, Swedish films have a history of being treated very poorly on home video. Things seem to be moving in the right direction, and even if these releases aren't perfect - with some, such as ****ing Åmål aka Show Me Love, being more flawed than others - they're a revelation compared to the old DVDs.

I'd love to see Staffan Hildebrand's '80s cult classics G - som i gemenskap, Stockholmsnatt and Ingen kan älska som vi released on Blu-ray. His work can be very uneven in terms of execution, but often has a sort of mesmerizing quality to it, and these movies are incredibly valuable as time capsules of Swedish pop culture in the '80s.

I'm no techie but can anyone explain how you get Blu-Ray that are 25fps. I didn't know that was possible with Bu-Rays.

I read these were totally washed of all grain and encoded at 25fps for no reason whatsoever.

It's in 1080/25PsF (basically progressive video encoded interlaced). 1080/25p is not possible on Blu-Ray.

Only ****ing Åmål has terrible DNR. The other ones are fine.

I guess this won't happen in the foreseeable future, if ever.

It could happen, but there may be other classic Swedish movies that are more likely. I mean, the only Ingmar Bergman film on nordic Blu-ray is “Fanny och Alexander”.

Studio-S are planning to release “Besökarna”, “Mannen från Mallorca” and “Pelle Erövraren” next year. Hopefully SF Studios will also continue with their releases, preferably in 1080p 24fps moving forward. The other big rights holder Nordisk Film seem to have given up on physical media. Not much from them these days.

Be aware that Jalla Jalla looks like DVD due to being captured with DV cameras. Lossless stereo sound was good though.

What I wouldn't give for a blu-ray release of Den Enfaldige Mördaren. Any movie related to Hasse Alfredson and Tage Danielsson for that matter.

Looks like the LM Box from the old teaser is definitely a Lukas Moodysson set.

Both my Noe sets just had Desperado cards

Amazing news!

I love Moodysson, but I need English subtitles for these.

It’s a bit weird that according to the back covers at least some of these will be 1080i instead of 1080p. Have sent an e-mail to SF and asked about this.
Farval Falkenberg is one of my favorite Swedish films. I own a DVD with english subs, and it would be a day one if it ever got a BD upgrade with subs. I've even been to Falkenberg. Cute little town.
