Excellent drama film
1 April 2007 | by (Kirkkonummi, Finland) – See all my reviews

I didn't expect much from this film when I went to see it last Monday but it turned out to be surprisingly good drama. It tells the story of a young girl who is, against her own will, taken to an institution in 1950's Sweden, where young poor girls are being sterilized. First she is ready to go through operation to get out, but as something surprising happens she must do everything in her power to stop it from happening.

The film is really captivating and not once was I bored. Also almost every actor fits to hers and his roles perfectly. I recommend this film to anyone. The film is based on true events.
