Competent movie-making, but overly episodic - with at least 1 HOUR of redundant footage...
12 November 2007 | by (Åby, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Long, lumbering tale of teenage Olof and his coming-of-age journey through Sweden in the 1910s. This award-winning epic tells both a rite-of-passage story, and a fairly interesting depiction of rural Sweden and the country's early proletarian and workers' movement.

Great production values and cinematography underline competent movie-making for sure... but we never get to know the protagonist enough to really care in the end, because of its overly episodic narrative. What's more, it contains at least one HOUR of footage and scenes that neither move, entertain or push the story forward... Poetic? No, in my book, that's being guilty of painfully redundant screen time! It's on many a list of best-ever Swedish movies. To me, it's not bad (as stated), but I probably wouldn't even rank it on my Swedish top-50...

5 out of 10 from Ozjeppe
