Short based on a poem - Spoilers
9 March 2004 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Stig Dagerman wrote the short it says here, though I remember it as a poem, it has a rhythm and a style which to me suggests it is a poem and in school we were taught it as a poem.

The poem/short concerns an ordinary day in Sweden which ends in tragedy. The build up is very subtle in the poem, but a bit more obvious as a short.

Stellan Skarsgård does a very nice rendition of the poem here, well modulated and not too different from the poet's own rendition (which I've heard on the radio once or twice).

The story is simple, it follows the child playing and running errands for his mother and the young couple going for a trip to the sea. This goes back and forth until they all meet tragically in the end.

This is one of the few poems I know by heart, it has stuck with me since 7th or 8th grade when we learned it at school.
