This movie is one of the most personal ever made by a Swedish director. Of course Ingmar Bergman's movies was also about himself but this film is different than those of Bergman. Widerberg tells the story of a director during one of his productions. It is quite obvious that the movie is about Bo because the film brings up the motifs that he used when directing. It becomes very personal when the directors wife accuses him of not caring for his Daughter, the exception of this was of course when he gave her minor roles in some of his film's. This make you both alienated and attached to the movie and it very good done.
Some other good sides is the use of very bad takes sometimes, it's not bloopers or anything but the could have been made better technically and this is done to alienate the audience. This is a must see especially if you like movies that are about movies and/or alienating of the audience. I consider it being Widerberg's next best movie after Mannen pa taket.
