A house of passion and deceit
13 December 2014 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

A theatre house as a world in miniature Though a world limited to self- centered passion, deceit and Shakespeare. And of course talent and hard work.This theatre house comes alive. And if you are not allergic to dashing performers and didactic staff, you might enjoy some of the finest Swedish actors included in this period piece of Scandinavian film making. Bengt Ekerot is one. Difficult and introvert, but always brilliant. And of course Swedish theatres prime mover, Edvin Adolphson. Along with the newcomer Gio Petré. Cool and complicated. We, the audience get the front seats of the aquarium. "Sceningång" (stage door) is entertaining to observe, if you are a theatre geek. Preferably a Swedish theatre geek.
