Pleasing to the eye - as well as the brain
20 July 1999 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Brilliant updating of themes from Peeping Tom and Vertigo. Acting, cinematography and music are all superb in the fifth film In Hoberts suite on the seven deadly sins. Like Vertigo the inner drama is more important, and believable, than the actual plot. Lena Endre proves once again she's one of the greatest actresses working today. Go see for yourself!
