Trivia

According to Nina Lagergren, Raoul's sister, Raoul had become increasingly frustrated over not being able to do anything about the unbearable scenes he had been witnessing. In the winter if 1942 the two spent an evening at a private film show put on by the British embassy in Stockholm, Sweden, where Pimpernel Smith was playing; she claimed "on the way home he told me that was just the kind of thing he would like to do." Two years later Wallenberg carried out just the same exploits as his role-model on a rescue mission in Budapest. See more »

A bleak, but good, film
21 April 2000 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

"God afton, herr Wallenberg" is perhaps one of the most bleak films I have ever seen. Even though it's a good film, I feel that it is very depressing and hard to shake off after you have seen it. The cinematography enhances this feeling brilliantly. The colours are bleak, the people are bleak, and the story (based upon real events) is bleak. A very depressing movie experience, but nevertheless a very well-made film, and Stellan Skarsgård is as brilliant as always.
