There's nothing like a nice cheerful Swedish film to pass the time, and this (you've guessed it!), was nothing like a nice cheerful Swedish film (but it passed the time). Lilja 4-ever tells the story of Lilja (Oksana Akinshina), and her gradual (but downward) spiral into the sex trade. She is originally from the Eastern Block (it's not specified in the film), but is abandoned by her mother, has to use her wits to survive, and is then tricked into leaving the country for a (supposedly) better life. Pretty grim all the way through, but an excellent film, loosely based on a true story, and 100% believable.
