Heart-warming honesty and sweet romance mark this film.
I watched this movie and was transported, both in transports of delight, and mentally transported back to Sweden, where I had a brief but intense love-affair.
The scenes with the two young lovers, meeting and playing on the lake, with the little boat, with the dog, "Squabble", picking berries, were so finely drawn on screen, they could have been transcribed from my memories...
Cinema can be magic, and cinema like this can make one's life more wonder-filled.
