Armbrytaran från Ensomheten is an awarded Swedish documentary about a small village and its young world champion in arm wrestling.
Heidi Anderson is the name of the 22 years old girl who is world champion in arm wrestling, in this documentary you will get a view about how she lives in this very small and strange village called Ensamheten (in English solitude), it is a village that contains 16 citizen, and they are all relatives. We also follows her to the world championship in Canada.
It's a fascinating documentary, and it has a really good father daughter portrait. It's also very interesting too see how all those relatives work together in this small and isolated village.
If you have a chance too see it, give it a try.
