Tragically forgotten Swedish masterpiece!
24 September 2004 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film was seen by 400.000 Swedes upon its initial release. Why it has become totally forgotten since, I will never know. Fact remains, this is a masterpiece. Gösta Ekman, in one of his best starring roles, plays somewhat alcoholic sport journalist Tore Andersson who escapes from his ruined relationship to Cypress for a vacation. He drinks to hard, is placed in a small nut-house for a while, returns to civilization dressed in a fur coat, and falls in love with the Norwegian travel guide. But fate wants something else. A movie which moves you like few others do, featuring lush photography, comedy, tragedy and several walks in the sun. Wish this could find its way to DVD someday.
