Great actors
14 June 2002 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Loa Falkman as the frustrated family father Rune Runeberg is the keeper of this movie. In Sweden he is mostly known as an opera-singer, and his talent as an actor is highly underrated. See the movie and enjoy his acting! Stina Ekblad is also great as the desperate wife, trying to cling to a marriage that is already dead.
