Together

‘Together’ is set in a Stockholm commune called Tillsammans (Swedish for “Together”) in 1975 — running time 106 mins

One house; one revolutionary; two open straight marriages; three gay people (maybe four); three children; two carnivores and eight vegetarians; there’s only one way they’re going to make it… together. Together is set in one of the communes that sprang up around Stockholm in the 1970s. Vaguely led by the sweet-natured Göran, who will do anything to avoid a conflict, the group spend their time arguing about left-wing politics and other questions such as whether doing the washing up is bourgeois. The commune’s dynamics are significantly shaken when Göran’s sister leaves her violent husband Rolf and moves in with her two children, Eva and Stefan.

Together is a bittersweet comedy; a satirical look at radical lifestyles and liberal values.
