Often when I watch Swedish movies I think the acting is too much. When I saw this movie I didn't think of it as a Swedish movie anymore. The acting was wonderful!
The writers have done a really good job gathering all the information and all the letters that the film writers grandmother (of something similar) sent to her family during her time at the institution (this is on the DVD as extras).
The storyline is a awful story that is based on true events, events that we in the Swedish school system puts a blind fold on so that we only shall see how neutral we are all the time.
I think this is a perfect history lesson that every teenager really should see.
