Black Jack emphasizes loneliness and desperation of today's society, with the only highlight of the week being Friday's dance. Scene: A few weeks around Christmas in Sweden (eighteen hours out of twenty-four are dark); the melancholy of the cold and darkness is overwhelming. The guys of the small town know each other, and so do the girls. Every weekend they meet at the local dance hall. There is the guy who is always drunk, the guy who is always nice and the guy who is always wise. However, the beautiful girl (Bergström) falls for the drummer of the band, a real Casanova, disagreeable and with a telephone-book the size of a bible. The nice guy is left behind, just like it always happens in the real world. It may sound very stereotypical, but it isn't. Nutley has made a really pertinent and realistic picture.
