The best Swedish countryside drama-thriller in ages.
24 March 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Splendid storytelling and dialog. Beautiful photography in this over all feel good drama/thriller. This movie describes the mentality, and the way of life in a small town in the middle of Sweden in a superb way. All the way to the thrilling end of the story.

Great acting from booth Jonas Karlsson and Helena af Sandeberg.

This is a must see movie for everybody who lived in the 50-60th and a should see movie for all the rest. It's not every day you watch a drama-thriller with this type of please tell me more I want more feeling.

To sum it up: I must say I love it. And I advise you to see it.
