Life Organization in Afghanistan during the Soviet Union

A story about some teenage boys who grow up in an orphanage with Russians on schedule, which takes place during the 1980s when the Soviet Union occupied Afghanistan. The film is based on real entries from the diaries from that time.

Classic: The Parachute in Cherbourg
This week’s classic happens to be Roger Wilson’s number one favorite. The musical from 1964, which won the Palme d’Or at Cannes the same year, is a passionate, colorful love drama between an umbrella saleswoman and an auto mechanic directed by Jacques Demme. He was also the husband of director Agnes Varda. The music was composed by Michel Legrand, but the actors in the film only imitated their singing lines. Lars Lönroth did a classic this week and it’s a repeat.
“Umbrellas in Cherbourg” can be streamed for free www.cinemateket.se Until December 7.
