Storyline

When she was a child, Anna Holm burned her face. This destroyed her looks, and she has become a mean and bitter woman. She and her 'friends' are black-mailers. One of the victims pay her by letting a plastic surgeon, doctor Wegert, make her beautiful again. Anna becomes a new person and leave the others. She becomes a governess for a young boy, who will inherit a fortune. The boy has an evil uncle, who wants to see the boy dead, so that he will inherit the fortune. He hires Anna's former colleagues as assassins. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Unconvincing acting
5 November 1999 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

The magic of Ingrid Bergman seems to be missing in this movie. Where is her natural talent for acting, that was so evident in Intermezzo? It sounds like she is on a stage, but perhaps you need to understand Swedish to fully hear how artificial her lines sounds. Bergman as a bitter blackmailer does not convince me one bit. The best acting is done by supporting actor Tore Svennberg as the old factory owner, an actor who reminds of British actor C. Aubrey Smith. Another supporting actor, Georg Rydeberg as the heir-not-to-be, was told in acting school that he had absolutely no talent for acting. I wouldn't go that far, but his acting is still undeveloped, .
