It´s like sci-fi !?
15 August 1999 | by (Lidingö, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I got a really strange but nice feeling when I saw this one. It almost feels like that your watching a sci-fi movie of some kind. I really love the part when Gösta Ekman falls into a lake and lie there for months, and after a while he is transformed into a kind of water creature. 9 / 10
