Ungdom i fara: ungdomsproblem i svensk spelfilm 1942-62
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Cinema Studies.

Abstract [en]

This thesis treats the way juvenile delinquency is depicted in Swedish feature films made between 1942 and 1962. The study makes a historical survey of the youth-going-astray films, how they portray contemporary society and life and convey their conception of youth related problems. The analysis is primarily based upon role analyses with the tliematics and cultural reception of the films in focus.

The analysis studies not only about twenty films that deal mainly with the subject, but also a number of films concerning other youth related subjects such as prostitution, sexual problems and, as a counterweight, the well-behaving youth, for instance youth engaged in associations. Furthermore, the analysis gives a picture of the public reception of tire films, both by critics and the Board of Film Censors.

The main point of the analysis is tire way the films mirror a widespread contemporary opinion. Thus, the relation between tire debate and tire film is analysed, as well as tire extent to which tire contemporary debate and the "politically correct” values catch on in Swedish film. To a large extent, Swedish films reflect the views expressed in the Public Inquiries of the State and in middle-of-the-road opinions in the debate. The majority of films try to stick to the middle course between the conservative line demanding stronger measures and the progressive line associating with the new pedagogy and liberal upbringing.
