Storyline

Is man's existence really meaningful and hopeful? As a reply to Ingmar Bergman's Prison (1949), this movie claims that it is. A ring passes between a lot of different people, giving the bearer or someone close a new meaning to life. Actors, embezzlers, old ladies and cheated husbands all seem to gain temporary hope from misery and disillusionment. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Rather Boring

I don't know. I did look at this movie for a few weeks ago and I found it rather boring. In my opinion *laughs* this would be like a... what do you say in English... first movie to Lord of the rings *laughs* again* you know what I mean.

Well, it was about an old woman who found a ring that was given to her by her husband (I think it was so)that had died long ago. Then she leaves the ring into an shop that sells rings and so on. And then another pair who's going to marry buy the same ring and find out that the one who left the ring in the shop is a relative to them or something. And then the ring wanders from people to people. In the opposite of Lord of the rings this ring is good and not evil!
