Political filmmaking about the morally superior country Sweden

This film sparked my interest from the get go with a highly controversial story. Right of the bat I should say that I'm Swedish and this is a film critiques my own country from a Polish perspective. I was worried that director was going to push his own opinions down the audiences throat. Which fortunately didn't happened. This is a film I strongly recommended to people interested governments role in ethics. Hopefully this film will bring up the debate about how sometimes Sweden's supposedly morally superior system also has some really big problems.

The problems of immigrants

The Polish title translates to "Alien Heaven," irony intended. The alien heaven is Sweden, where a Polish couple with a nine year old daughter live. They are obviously trying hard to make ends meet, in particular to pay the rent for their excessively small and no too confortable flat. They are not integrated in Swedish society and seem to receive a sort of polite, often kind but distant attention from their neighbors. The couple's friends are also immigrants; their best friend is Ukrainian.

The movie deals with the Swedish social services and their (genuine) preoccupation with children not adequately cared for at home. Good intentions abound, but other factors (such as the clash of cultures, the unreliability of neighbor's impressions or the often complicated interpretation of children's answers) cloud the issue.

The movie is not a criticism of Swedish society. It deals with problems that immigrants (and social services) have to face in any country and any society. The script and the direction are austere, unsentimental and evenhanded. Good acting by all concerned. A quality movie.
