I think "en film av Lukas Moodysson som gjorde Fucking Åmål" means "a
film by Lukas Moodysson, who did 'Fucking Åmål'". The famous film
"Fucking Åmål" was  released in the US under another name ("Show Me
Love", I think). I think the English loan word  may be used
figuratively/intensively here; Åmål is the name of a town. See (for
example):
