This film is overall so-so, it has its ups and downs, including one peek which is to be mentioned as one of the best scenes in Swedish motion picture history, where the cold-hearted father (Von Sydow) throws his son (Gösta Ekman) into a secluded lake, where he gets caught in the soil. We then get to follow the process of how he becomes a part of the lake and the nature. The fact that everything that happens to him, in theory could happen in real life, fortifies the experience enormously. The scene is performed with such elegance and such captivating manners, leaving the audience breathless.
