Stockholmian drama
9 January 2000 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This production boasts an excellent display of drama characteristic of the time and place. Ulf Palme plays with vigour a writer turn detective and his hunt for answers to his questions not only depicts a perfect setting but also one of the few movies that are bluntly realistic. Not only the joyful aspects of life rather the edgy truth of post-war Sweden.
