All the tram scenes were shot during one very hot day in August 2002. The team crew consisted of three persons, Stig Ericsson, Kurt Tedenbrant and Kristian Gemfeldt, who worked for a non profit organization called Spårvägssällskapet Ringlinien. Their uniforms represent different seasons and were made during the 40's and are therefore authentic. What is not authentic is that the trams were driven on the right hand side during the shooting and Sweden in the days before 1967 had left hand side traffic. In one scene in the last episode the trams are even driven backwards to get the impression of left-traffic. The trams themselves are from the 20's and to get the correct 40's-feeling you won't see any curtain since they didn't exist during WW2. See more »
I loved this movie. its so well made, and so much according to the book. although they made Sven weird. hes not supposed to stutter! and Stephanie is supposed to have dark hair and dark eyes. not light hair and blue eyes.....but really, it was very well made
movies like this are so important. it encourages people to read the books. but also teaches about the holocaust from a different point of view. more like our point of view. out of all the movies I've seen and books I've read about the holocaust this is the one that hit closest to home. people learn much more when things are told from their perspective. I mean, the entire story is told from far away of what is happening. sort of like how we relate to the holocaust
