Bosse Larsson - the king featured on film
13 August 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is, along with the follow up Blådårar 2, without a doubt the best documentary about a soccer-team ever made. It's a sneak peek of what's going on inside Swedens most successful soccer-club ever, as well as a declaration of love to the game of soccer. The viewer follows the lives of the players as well as the fans. But the most important thing bout this film is that Swedens GREATEST soccer-player of all times is featured on the film. I'm talking about Bosse Larsson. Sweden and Malmös answer to Elvis Presley. As classic scene in the film with the legendary Egon" Todde" "Jönsson says everything.

Who are you most proud of in Malmö FF?" "It's Bosse", Egon answers. "We in the younger generation would like to remember players like Thern and Schwarz, the camera-man says. "Yes", says Todde, "They were great, but not like Bosse, he could do EVERYTHING".
