Trivia

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!

Unbelieveable. A talented Swedish comedy
11 February 2004 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

In December 1945 a train leaves the central station of Stockholm for Berlin. There aren't much left when it arrives. Not of the train and not of some passengers.

This is a black comedy directed by Peter Dalle and acted like they used to act in the 40s and also photographed (in b/w) like they used to during that period. The actors must have had lots of fun making it. They aren't much of characters, like they weren't in the 40s, but the story is well narrated and everybody has timing.

A deadly black and deadly funny film. See it, if you didn't think the Swedes were capable of humour.
