Quotes

David Frost: How would you like to be remembered by people? I don't know that you're gonna die tomorrow, thank God you're not. But uh, what would you like your obituary to say?
Olof Palme: That I have never thought of. And I hope that I will, up to the very last breath, not think of it. Because I think so, the moment people begin to think of their obituaries they start to be scared, they don't dare to do things and they lose their vitality. As we are here on earth and we're doomed to be on this earth, we should try to ...

Seriously flawed
4 July 2013 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

The directors of this documentary said that they were only interested in Olof Palme's personal life. But, of course, they had to talk about his political activities, nationally and internationally. On the International front, they show only one point of view, that of his enemies. There is one book which explains formidably well the international context of Olof Palme's political life: 'The Secret War Against Sweden' by Ola Tunander. But, apparently it was not possible to interview the author. His theory, however, about the fact that there exist alongside one another two different governments (a permanent one, and an elected one) in nearly all Western 'democracies' could have explained the very difficult context of Olof Palme's political initiatives. The makers also show the fiscal problems of Ingmar Bergman, one of Sweden's most illustrious sons. But, they don't explain the reasons why he was attacked by the Swedish fiscal authorities (the same happened with H. Laxness in Iceland). This movie doesn't reflect the true ideals of a generous, sincere and incorruptible man, whose enemies are still trying to smear his name. Ola Tunander's book is a must read. This movie is only a good documentary about Olof Palme's personal life.
