A forgotten masterpiece
6 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A magnificent but almost forgotten movie, even in Sweden, although it was awarded Best Direction in the Swedish Oscars, Filmbaggen, in 1967, collected two awards at the Berlin Film Festival 1967, and took the two top awards in the Chicago Film Festival 1967. It seems impossible to get hold of on VHS or DVD, even in Sweden (although it was released on video in Sweden in 1997). However, it is shown in Swedish art-house cinemas ever so often. The cinematography is beautiful (Jan Troell always does his on cinematography, he started working as cinematographer for Bo Widerberg), and the story about the young man in northern Sweden during World War I is both moving and funny. Full of cameos of some of the biggest stars in Swedish cinema, like Max von Sydow, Gunnar Björnstrand, Allan Edvall and Per Oscarsson.
