Daughter unconditional loving her alcoholic father
12 April 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This film is an adaption of an autobiographical novel by Åsa Lindeborg and tells the story of a daughters life growing up alone with her alcoholic father. Experienced Swedish screenwriter, cinematographer and director Kjell-Åke Andersson has with this made his ninth feature, a Swedish/Norwegain co-production.

The story starts when five year old Lisa, living in a block of flats in an industrial town in Sweden with her mother and father. The father, Hasse, is a metal worker and a periodical drinker. Soon his wife leaves him, after finding another man, and Lisa stays on with her father. She shows unconditional love and affection for him, despite of his flaws. We see his departure into strong alcoholism, as his health weakens, and the daughter see him slowly deteriorate.

The film is another beautiful depiction of Sweden in the seventies and eighties. The growing communist movement which was typical for the heavy industrial settings at the time, and the film gives a lovely glimpse of Sweden back then. The film is sometime emotional tense, and also bleak and dreary at times. But all in all it is a good time capsule, with some of the music which was typical for the time.

This film is telling how a daughter really loves her father despite his alcoholic tendencies, is highly influenced political. The acting performances by Mikael Persbrandt and Ida Engvoll is stunning. Maybe the best performance of Persbrandt yet. The film is more sad than tragic, but still quite uplifting on behalf of surviving such a situation. A fine film, but not entertainment.
