What's mazarin in English? I don't know, but I like this miniseries...
I just walked down the street towards Luleå busstation and figured I might as well pop in at Videoteket to see if anything new was in. On the news stand sat this peculiar little DVD-box named Silvermannen.
Yesterday I went down to rent the film, I just couldn't get it out of my head... Now I have seen it.
It turned out to be a three part miniseries with quite a weird plot. Directed by Ulf Malmros that made Smala Sussie (Slim Susie) and Tjenare Kungen. A man is discovered, no memory, but instead of the average amnesia story we get something rather different. At the end it doesn't make sense mind you me... But It was a hell of a ride. Malmros had done it again, or rather, made it before, since this came out on TV long before Smala Sussie, He had made a roller-coaster ride through a picturesque small town, some scenes in Stockholm, and all the way out in Egypt (doubt that they really filmed there though) and everywhere there are sprinkled out these quirky and fantastic characters.
See it, enjoy it. but don't become frustrated if you don't understand it... It is called "A Swedish Twin Peaks" for a reason...
