The Duckpond

Robert Andersson
Sweden, 2019, 96 min.

In Swedish with English subtitles.
Includes violence, sexual content and adult language.

Fredriks peaceful life in an idyllic small town is turned upside down when his old childhood friend Patrik is released from prison. Together with Birger, the third member of their old trio, they manage to get lost in a spiral of chaos involving a vindictive policeman, a few grams of weed and a gang of Danish robbers. The Duckpond is an elevated drama comedy about the unintentional change that is impossible to foresee and can change ones life in the blink of an eye.

Director's Statement

The story is about the unintentional change that is impossible to foresee and can change one's life in the blink of an eye. (The title is satirically comparing the all-too-small country and its elite to a pond of quacking ducks.)
