1975, Sweden. Tired of her abusive husband, Elisabeth packs her bags and moves with her children to her brother's commune, 'Together'. As a fairly ordinary housewife from the suburbs, the commune's freewheeling attitudes towards sex and politics will open Elisabeth's eyes and change her family's life forever. Together is a film about people trying to live together. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. It's about love and divorce and happiness and unhappiness and children and adults and ABBA and sex and football.
A house full of communist hippies attracts all sorts of folks who seek refuge and quickly warm to its charms. A nice ending. The feel is 70's both in content and presentation. It is a low budget film and has an unpolished direction. It is not glamorous nor with any particular action. The sentiments however are real and it is thoughtful.
