A very touching film!!!!!!!!!!!!
19 November 2001 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

This film must have inspired many film makers,it´s perfect in every ways,the cinematography,acting,direction........ It´s not so famous in other countries then Sweden.But in Sweden this was actually picked in a newspaper as the best Swedish film ever made including all Bergman films.I think that it has done better films in Sweden but it´s still a perfect film.

Anders is 18 years old and lives with his parents in a poor section of the city.The acting is superb by Keve Hjelm as the alcoholic Father and the acting is great by the rest of the cast to.I am almost sure that I give this film 5/5 but it´s not the best Swedish film ever.
