Cornelis is the unique chronicle about one of Sweden's greatest music legends - Cornelis Vreeswijk. An honest and gripping account of an exceptionally talented, but self-destructive artist's intense life both on and behind the stage. A man who during his whole life was searching for love and confirmation. Written by
Cornelis' friend Hasse and hairdresser Sigge at Länkarna in the movie are played by themselves and were actual friends of the singer while he lived at Länkarna in Solna. The room were Cornelis is sleeping in was his actual room. N.B the room has no windows which was a special request of Cornelis. See more »
For many years this movie has bin planed, but not until now has anyone dared to make it. Mainly because Cornelis was in life, and still is in death a very loved musician, and in his own way character. I have grown up with his music, and has always loved it. Both my sisters are named after characters in his songs.
Yesterday the movie had its Gala premiere in Trollhättan, with both the director Amir Chamdin, and the main star in the movie, Hans-Erik Dyvik Husby, present. Me and my girlfriend had both received invitations to attend, and it gave us chance to take one persons each with us, so we took my parents.
Now to the movie... I was actually a bit scared at first, maybe they would destroy it, and Cornelis at the same time. but I must say... they didn't. The movie turned out fantastic. Hans-Erik Dyvik Husby made a fantastic part, specially when you think about that his from Norway, and had to learn Swedish first. In this movie you gets to follow Cornelis Vreeswijk from just before his brake in to the music business, to his tragic death almost 30 years later.
Not much else to say about this without telling to much, just Go and see it if you can! Its a fantastic movie...
