Love and Anarchy centres around Sofie (Ida Engvoll) who can’t stop… well, enjoying herself, even on a day when she’s starting a new job!
The fact Violent Femmes’ Blister in the Sun plays as the opening tune explains what we’re about to witness, but what we’re also about to witness is some glorious architecture as it’s filmed in Sweden.
Sofie is working at a publishing house in order to help them go digital, but what is quite clear to some is that she’s there to fire the deadwood. It’s not quite Glengarry Glen Ross as she’s not a ruthless Alec Baldwin, but you get the idea.
Cue her first night of working late at the office, and just when she thinks everyone has gone home, Sofie decides to rub one out in her office, but… is caught by Max (Björn Mosten). He has a smartphone with a camera and he’s gonna use it…
Similarly, her absent-minded Dad’s having trouble going digital, finding it easier to steal from shops than pay for items with the phone she bought for him.
But back to the main premise, and also in the first episode, instead of a ‘dick pic’, someone has posted a ‘clit pic’ on the company’s Instagram page. As for who? It didn’t take me long to guess…
Apparently, the pair will get up to more jolly japes in the other 7 episodes, but unless I hear otherwise, then one episode of this unfunny junk is more than enough.
Love and Anarchy is not available to pre-order on Blu-ray or DVD, but is on Netflix now.
