Untouched and Pure

Untouched and Pure


Also available

This is a very unusual and original film, breaking new ground in filmmaking methods as well as in ways of viewing things. All the usual facts about Sweden have been given a hundred times over, and often in better forms than film can offer, but in this film the director has launched into a form of cinematic observation and commentary that offers an entirely new experience of things Swedish.

    I want someone to explain to me how a welfare state actually preserves individual freedom. People should be educated in every nation to be self-reliant and not expect the government to help them at every turn. Every succeeding generation grows up spoiled and ungrateful. I cherish my freedom and would prefer to keep every cent of my pay rather than having it siphoned away to a benevolent tyrant. These people clearly don't care about their personal liberty and are content with government intervention in even the most intimate facets of life. That is very dangerous.
