Storyline

The Swedenhielms is an old aristocratic family. The head of the family is professor Rolf Swedenhielm. His three children Bo, Julia and Rolf Jr also live in the house. They also have an excellent house maid, Boman. Because of the family's extravagance, they are heading for bankruptcy. But perhaps their problems would be solved if Rolf was awarded the Nobel Prize?

Slow but sweet
1 July 2002 | by (Corrales, NM) – See all my reviews

Comic treatment of family sliding towards financial ruin unless Father wins the Nobel Prize. In some ways, this film reminded me of `You Can't Take It With You' (1938). Gösta Ekman is superb as the eccentric Father, Rolf Swedenhielm, and Karin Swanström couldn't be better as the devoted and faithful servant, Marta Boman. Film was recently shown in US on TCM and highlighted an early performance of 20-year-old Ingrid Bergman as Astrid - it is a small part. Although the comedy is there, it is subdued - perhaps giving us an insight into the Swedish culture. A slow, but warm, film with good moral messages. Not for everyone.
