Good one by the Orson Welles of Sweden
11 March 2002 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

A very interesting movie, dealing with "womens lib" in the early twenties, a young womans desire and fear for love, and simultaneously providing you with a historically interesting picture of the early Swedish aviators. Terrific acting almost on all hands, the only exception as always Richard Wolff, who as usual plays himself. Even the dialects are well done, with some understandable exceptions; sometimes Roney is back in Stockholm but it's hard to blame him.

The only problem from my point of view is that Troell is Swedens Orson Welles! Just like Welles, he made the movie of his life on his first try. Troells "Här har du ditt liv" (1966) is such an amazing accomplishment that it is simply impossible for him to beat, and you always get the feeling that he is trying! Well, he didn't pull it of this time either, but possibly this should be higher than my 7/10.
