Following his debut feature, Show Me Love, and his acclaimed Lilya 4-ever, the talented Lukas Moodysson probes further into the dark excesses of human behaviour. Sure to provoke controversy, his fearless A Hole in My Heart explores the shocking world of DIY pornography, reality TV and emotional disconnection. Rickard and his alienated son, Eric, share a dingy apartment in suburbia. Rickard is something of an amateur pornographer, reality TV and the affordability of a digi-cam making possible this 'creative' venture. Rickard and his buddy Gecko shoot a skin flick over the course of a weekend, with wannabe porn star Tess. The trio's bravura increases with their inebriation, their antics descending into the unimaginable. The only brake on the action is emotionally dis-located Eric, who crawls from the safety of his Death Metal-blasting earphones whenever the action gets too nasty. This is definitely not a film for the faint-hearted!

"The new film by Lukas Moodysson... solidifies his standing as the most interesting director working in Scandinavia today." - Variety
