There is no other movie like 491. Not even close.
12 July 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The story is about a group of youth criminals who are chosen to participate in a social experiment, named "Guesthouse Objectivity" (Pensionatet Sakligheten), where they are assigned to live together in an apartment while being supervised by two forgiving social workers. The tagline is: It is written that 490 times you can sin and be forgiven. This motion picture is about the 491st. This controversial film, which featured a male homosexual rape scene, was first banned in Sweden, but released after reediting. Amongst other things, a scene in which a woman is raped by a dog was cut. The film was also banned in Norway until 1971. The reactions from especially conservative elements in Sweden were of disgust and outrage, and it was one of the reasons why the Christian Democratic Party was founded in 1965. 1963 was a good year in Swedish film. A part from "491", Ingmar Bergman created two masterpieces "Winter light" and "The Silence".
