"Glasblåsarns barn" is the most stunningly beautiful Swedish film I have ever seen (yes, I think it's more beautiful than "Elvira Madigan"). The cinematography is great, the production design exquisite, the costume design is brilliant, and the locations are truly beautiful. It's on par with "Sleepy Hollow," really. Not only is it beautiful, it is also a good film. Thommy Berggren is magnificent as Härskaren, and apart from him the film boasts a top notch cast like Stellan Skarsgård and Pernilla August. Even the two kids do great jobs. A wonderful fairy tale for both children (not too young, though) and adults. Highly recommended.
