*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is "Att döda ett barn" or "To kill a child", an 8-minute short film that is based on a 20-th century short story by Stig Dagerman. The 2 writers and directors are Björne Larson and Alexander Skarsgård. For the latter, who is a prominent actor, it was the first and so far (as of 2015) only filmmaking effort behind the camera. This was actually a whole Skarsgård family project here as father Stellan narrates the tale and son Valter (to Stellan) plays the main character. Unfortunately, for me the narration of the story never worked well together with what we saw in this brief movie. It was certainly a truly challenging task and thumbs up for giving it a try. I would not call it a failure, but it is also not a good film and definitely nowhere near as good as it could have been.
