This is the story of people in a world of trouble and confusion - about home who were not home - on the streets, with the youth gangs. The difference between them and us? It is perhaps not so great - they are bound as we are by desires and instincts and called like us to liberation from there. Therefore, this is also the story of how the bound man becomes free and how it may dawn over want the same human souls. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

A turning point...
14 March 2015 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

"Women in captivity" depicts the interiors of dance halls, glimpses from broken homes, from the streets and doorways where urban youth sentenced to reside. There, the film except an exquisite photography, a French realism and a gray authenticity that engages and captivates and gives development an inexorable logic. The film focuses less on the shelters and women's prison, the pictures and the stories of these seem right uninspiring and officiously necessary. Be that as it may, in comparison to what the film in general stands for; it is the best portrayal of the youth of today and their collision with the problems of life and justice made so far. Olof Molander's directing is full of genuine pearls without ever seeming intrusive or strained. At the same time, as the shooting of this film was going on, unfolded a gigantic turning point in European history, the Battle of Stalingrad.
