A great movie – humorous, passionate and beautiful.
11 April 2001 | by (stockholm, sweden) – See all my reviews

I've seen a lot of films. And I dare to say that this is a masterpiece. A wonderful script, fantastic acting and beautiful photo. It's about working class people in Sweden in the late 40's. It may sound boring but it's a fascinating story told with heart, passion and wit. Each line is poetry. This is a deeply touching film that makes your heart smile with a tiny drop of sadness. So if you're looking for great cinematic experiences, you simply must see Kvarteret Korpen. The sooner, the better!
