Not for the faint of heart
16 October 2002 | by (Gothemburg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Lars Norén, Swedens perhaps most famous as well as infamous theatrical director has done it again.

An adaptation of a stage production, "skuggpojkarna" tells the story of a group of inmates in a prison reserved for the criminally insane.

These men are murderers, child molesters and rapists, but as is well pointed out, still human beings.

This play depicts the prisoners and their conflict with remorse, or sometimes their lack of it in a chilling and thought provoking manner. Norén barrs no emotion or dialogue from his work. Make no mistake, this is as raw and gritty as it gets.
