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

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

" Why? This movie is brilliant.It shows how the human trafficking business works and riches over unprotected women drown in poverty. Lilja,being abandoned by her mother and left alone with her only true friend,Volodya,manages to keep hope and believe in a better future for her and her friend.She is a dreamer and a pure innocent soul who doesn't like being a prostitute and gain easy money like her classmate,Natasha.

"22/01/2014 Aikansa tätäkin itseltäni pitkitin. Moodyssonin filmi on äärimmäisen kypsä ja ankara. Asiat eivät Lylya 4-everissä kovin kaukana todellisuudesta ole ja siksi tämä on kipeää tiedostettavaa katsellessa tätä filmiä. Eikä tämä tapahdu edes kaukana Suomesta. Omalla painollaan melankoliaa, naiivia ja toivotonta lohtua täyteen ladattuna elokuva on todella hieno. Visuaalinen ilme rakastuttaa ja Rammsteinilla sekä itäblokin jynkkymusiikilla ladattu soundtrack on luo sit"
