Storyline

The tiny village in the far north of Sweden called Ensamheten (Solitude) has sixteen inhabitants. They all share an unusual passion - armwrestling. Among them is 22-year-old Heidi Andersson, three times a world champion. Here is a varied life. One day in the forest with the other lumberjacks, the next she is in the big city modelling bridal gowns. She hunts moose with her mother and talks about boys with her father. The village is a cooperative and they are all behind this slender woman as she takes on the world. Written by Anonymous

Inspiring and boring at the same time
1 March 2005 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Quite a thought provoking documentary about the Swedish female world arm wrestling champion and her life.

Certain parts were boring (OK, she lives in a small village called Solitude where all inhabitants are family, we get it!) while others where very fascinating (most of all the world championship itself).

I think the documentary would have been much better had it focused on the championship.

Some more points: * What was going on in the competition? Some more details (number of participants, rounds etc) would have been interesting. I find the sport of Arm Wrestling much like Sumo from a spectator's viewpoint (short, intense matches), although Sumo competitions are much better filmed. * How did Heidi's father and the other fellow (Torbjörn? Who was he? Her brother? her cousin?) do in the competition? The filmmaker build up rapport with these two, but we only see her father losing one game.

Finally, I was reminded about the main character of a Swedish fantasy novel - Svärdsspel i Hadarlon (www.neogames.se/svardsspel). Heidi Anderson could get that role any day, she even looks like Ryana, who in the book struggle a lot to win a championship, just like Heidi.
