Trivia

Peter Dalle (the director) didn't want to do any acting in the movie, but after "some certain people" (Dalle's own words) thought he should act, he agreed to be the Conductor. See more »

Goofs

The edition of Wittgenstein's "Tractatus logico-philosophicus" that we see was first printed in 1992 (2nd ed. 1997), it could not be available at the time when the film takes place, 1945. The 1992 edition was a re-preint of an older edition from 1961. Tractatus was first published 1921, but with a German title, "Logisch-philosophische Abhandlung". See more »

Quotes

Conductor: [Gunnar has recently pulled the emergency brakes after seeing a man outside the train dressed up as Santa] Okay, my dear mister. You've crossed the line. Mutilating a war veteran, sure. Food poisoning war prisoners? That's okay - we can all have a bad day. But playing with the emergency brakes? It can be all the bloody christmas it wants. I hope you have a really, really good excuse for this!
Gunnar: I saw Santa Claus!

Congratulations to all non-Swedes
23 January 2006 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

Outside Sweden you are not expected have seen this movie. Happy you. The cast includes several actors that are important part of modern the Swedish movie history. And still..

Seems like Peter Dalle only had a an idea lasting for about 20 minutes. Robert Gustafson is totally misused in this movie, trying to copy a younger Gösta Ekman. Ekman, by the way, is the only actor fulfilling the expectations.

Credit that can be given is for the photo, splendid idea using black and white. Music is OK.

But over-all it's a waste of god actors and the time of the audience.
