Friend of Fanny and Zac


A small village in Västergötland, Sweden. Everything is turned upside-down when the local loner dies and his mansion, called House of Angels, is inherited by his unknown grand-daughter Fanny. She comes riding on a big black motorcycle with her best friend Zac, wearing black leather and spikes. The farmer Axel Flogfält had expected that he would be able to buy the mansion for a good price, but now it seems that Fanny and Zac will stay there. The village is divided into two camps, one for and one against them. Written by Mattias Thuresson

A great film with a lot of implied stories never told
29 December 2013 | by (Copenhagen. Denmark) – See all my reviews

This trilogy is just beautiful. You have to look between the lines though. There a so many unspoken Things in these three movies about "Englegård" (Farm for angles), that it makes you love it, because it is done in a perfect realistic way.

The first and the third film are the best. The way the actors, act without saying anything is perfect. We see ordinary persons in more or less ordinary situations. Strangers arriving to a small community where everybody is hiding the truth from each other. Hidden stuff that the stranger's some how reveals. Or do they ??

I just Wonder, could there be one more movie in this story ? There are more unspoken Things about Englegård that has not been told...

I love them....

Best regards Rene Petersen
