This three-part drama sensitively portrays a teenage romance between an English boy and a Swedish girl. A joint Swedish-British production, Annika stars Jesse Birdsall and Christina Rigner alongside Bulman star Don Henderson, and was co-written by Colin Nutley, a multi-award-winning English director now living and working in Sweden. Nutley is highly acclaimed for his insightful treatment of the mores of his adopted country, and several of his films have been chosen to represent Sweden at leading international film festivals and at the Academy Awards. Eighteen-year-old Pete Daniels is spending the summer doing casual work on the Isle of Wight when he meets and falls in love with Annika, a fifteen-year-old language student. Their relationship quickly intensifies - but the time inevitably comes when Annika has to return to her homeland, and Pete makes a life-changing decision.


I saw this drama back in 1984 and loved it then ,especially as i live on the island. It captures the essence of being a teen on the isle of Wight. I think it shows well the rawness of first love. I had just left school,it was cult viewing for sure. We often talk of it. It was sad in the end. It was also addictive and compelling to watch. I would love to obtain a copy of it but have no idea how to aquire it. Can anyone help?
