Maybe one has to be Swedish to fully appreciate Tre Solar. Understanding the words is not enough. In the making of this film one could have chosen between fantasy and realism. Apparently writer and director Richard Hobert went for realism. The sets, the cast, the acting and the costumes are all convincing enough. But then his heroine Hanna (Endre) acts like a serious anachronism. She is a modern day Swedish woman with none of the taboo or restrain that medieval patriarchate put on women. While the story runs from AD to BC, modern Swedish film-making often deems it necessary to be vulgar and offensive to make a point. Though Hoberts script is mild in this respect (from Swedish point of view), its arrogance may still be enough to cause contempt. To paraphrase a Swedish idiom; "At least two of the three suns come down like pancake." In script and in ambition. There are many really poor films being made. This is not one of them. This one is medieval and plain mediocre... Though we have to acknowledge its potential.
