Review of Ljust & fräscht (2016)

Moving picture, 87 minutes

Seen in 2016.

How economic stress, identity formation and status-seeking spur modern interior decorating, and how it does no good. The toxicity of the market for “inspiration” as the term is used in magazines, meaning the induced ambition toward conspicuous consumption.

Filmed stage show, ca. 2012. Occasionally incisive, particularly when Lindström rhetorically identifies Schyffert as the common denominator of all of Schyffert’s unsatisfying living situations. The polished turns of phrase make this a modernized form of “dymedelst”-style comedic writing à la Grönköpings veckoblad.
