Review: "A Part of You"


This Swedish drama combines moving turns from its teen stars with a nuanced script built around moments and emotions rather than major events or dialogues.


A Part of You's success rests on the credibility of its lead actors' performances, and Maxime and Ryding (who also star in Netflix series Young Royals) deliver.


Maxime communicates complex emotional development, often without words. This works in the film's favor, as key scenes involving more dialogue and arguments are not as poignant as the quieter moments.


It helps that viewers learn information at the same time as Agnes. Handsome use of lighting adds to the film's sensibility.
