Trivia

The film was passed uncut by Swedish censors, leaving one particular scene of sado-masochistic homosexual behavior intact. Sjoman is on record as saying that the censors didn't cut it because they didn't want to bring attention to it. See more »

Very good acting
11 December 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Halvar Björks acting in this film must be one of the best ever performed in Swedish film. The film is still very interesting to see. People who can´t appreciate films about persons who are not as superficial and conventional as themselves will of course have some troubles with this film.
