... and that’s when I tuned out.

I've just discovered a fun fact I have nobody to share with: Bjorn Andresen, Tadzio from Visconti's "Death in Venice" acts in "Midsommar". I haven't seen the movie (nor am I planning to - too scaredy-cat for that), but since his name is fairly low on the credit list, I assume he is just one of many creepy Swedes. His character's name is "Dan", if anyone's interested

One of the fun aspects of Midsommar is that it invites people to read into it and then to take information like that and go even deeper. It makes sense that Bjorn Andrésen is in the film because the festival is about renewing life through the cycle that ends in death. Andrésen once symbolized youth and now he represents being closer to death. It also must be deliberate that he is named Dan while Florence Pugh plays Dani, connecting that circle.
