Lilya forever is a brilliant film, the acting brilliant the story brutal but brilliant. Lilja is a young girl with only one dream a happy life, which turns into a life of horror and the only way to have her happy ending is through tragedy. This movie is at times graphic, brutal but honest, it shows the horror of what really happens in the sex trade. The ending for me was my favourite part, even th... read more

Back then, I thought 'Fucking Åmål' was a very solid directing debut and I was really curious to see what Lukas Moodysson would do next. Eventually, it took many years to see something else from this guy but it was definitely worth it. Indeed, I thought this follow up (his 3rd directing effort, as a matter of fact) was really impressive but I thought it was also a really heartbreaking story. I m... read more

“Lilya forever is a brilliant film, the acting brilliant the story brutal but brilliant.

This movie is at times graphic, brutal but honest, it shows the horror of what really happens in the sex trade. The ending for me was my favourite part, even though it is sad it was just the way it was shoot it was the part where I cried the most. Oksana Akinshina did such a brilliant job, when she did not speak her face continued to tell the tale. If you can handle brutal honest films you will like this one, but it is very depressing but so worth a look.” read more

"Yksi elämäni vaikuttavimpia elokuvakokemuksia on Lilja 4-everin näkeminen elokuvateatterissa vuonna 2003. Olin 15-vuotias. En suoraan sanottuna muista, että minkä takia lähdin teatteriin katsomaan sitä. Todennäköisesti olin vain lukenut elokuvan synopsiksen kotipaikkakuntani paikallislehdestä ja jokin oli klikannut. Muistan elokuvateatterin olleen hyvin tyhjä, sillä 99% prosenttia kotipaikkakuntani asukkaista käy vain kerran vuodessa elokuvissa katsomassa Timo Koivusalon uusimman si"

" Dark drama from Lukas Moodyson about trafficking of young Eastern European teenagers for prostitution. "My Hertz Brent" by Rammstein kicks off the movie and it never lets it grip go. Sadness and hopelessness sweps over this movie like a heavy stone."

A very good movie

“Back then, I thought 'Fucking Åmål' was a very solid directing debut and I was really curious to see what Lukas Moodysson would do next. Eventually, it took many years to see something else from this guy but it was definitely worth it. Indeed, I thought this follow up (his 3rd directing effort, as a matter of fact) was really impressive but I thought it was also a really heartbreaking story. I mean, the whole thing was completely relentless and there was absolutely no redemption in this movie and you watch this flick, you wonder what does a guy feel when he goes to see such an underage prostitute. How can they enjoy themselves?!? I have seen some tough movies but this one was just really hardcore and despicable and you should definitely be aware of this before watching this flick as ther” read more
