Troell can do better
22 November 2001 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Slow and boring film about a triple murder that took place in Sweden 1988. Based on real events that is but it´s impossible to say how realistic the film is as most of the film portrays the two people alone and who does really know what happened to them. Jan Troell is a much better director than he proves to be in this film.
