R&A 12: Simple Simon

R&A 12: I rymden finns inga känslor

1 h 26 min  |  Love&Anarchy  |  Release Date: 20.9.2012

Bill Skarsgård is Simon. He has Asperger's. He doesn't like to be touched. This is something he tells people as soon as he meets them; it's best to be safe. Simon has a carefully structured, safe life. When things are too stressful, he retreats into a barrel, a capsule in which he can imagine he is in the peacefulness of space. Martin Wallström is Sam. He loves his brother. He's the only person Simon trusts. They are both at the age where they're trying to break away, to live their own lives, and when Simon can no longer cope in the family home, Sam lets him move in to his place. Unfortunately this isn't easy for Sam's girlfriend.

When things go wrong, Simon decides he is going to find Sam another damn girl; and as in all the best stories, unexpected things happen along the way. This is a complex love story, as much about brotherhood as anything else. It's also a fantastic comedy. It's beautifully filmed with a bright colour palette that mirrors Simon's taste in clothes.
