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.
