Beautiful and Aesthetic
3 October 2002 | by (Karlskrona, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I found Svart Lucia absolutely wonderful. It has been one of my favorite films since my teens and it still holds despite being made in -92.

The plot is surely important but hardly incredibly unique, what is worth noting in this movie is the use of lights, shadows, sounds, props, actors...everything (including the score) is blended in such perfect harmony it surpasses a low budget thriller and turn into a piece of art. The casting is great, perhaps because I know all the characters since ten years, especially Tova Magnusson in the lead role and Björn Kjellman as the weird excentric boy.

Give it a chance, preferably with candles lit and a glass of wine/cup of tea in your hand.
