Storyline

Inventor Carl Åkerblom is a rosy-cheeked 54 year-old admirer of Franz Schubert - and a patient in the psychiatric ward of Akademiska Hospital in Uppsala, after having attempted to beat to death his fiancée, Pauline Thibault. Together with another patient, Professor Osvald Vogler, they set up a film project: the living talkie. Before long, they set off on a frantic tour with their film, "The Joy of the Joyous Girl"...

The title is taken from Shakespeare's "Macbeth", act five scene five, when Macbeth says that "life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage". "Struts and frets" can be translated with "larmar och gör sig till". See more »

Not known well enough

Possible surpassing even "Fanny and Alexander". Demanding - naturally - and possible rather hard to understand for non-scandinavian. But free of clichés

  • even bergmanäs clichés.
