"Tangible, understated and good..."
3 July 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Swedish screenwriter and director Molly Hartleb's television miniseries which was written by screenwriters Maria Essén and Måns Holmqvist, is inspired by an autobiographical book from 2005 by Swedish author Lillemor Östlin whose overall sentences for criminal acts makes her the woman who has spent the longest time in prison in Sweden. It premiered on the Swedish television channel SVT 1, was shot on locations in Gothenburg, Mariestad and Stockholm in Sweden and is a Swedish production which was produced by Sveriges Television Ab. It tells the story about a 22-year-old woman named Lillemor Östlin who works as a telephone operator and lives in an apartment in Vasagatan, Stockholm in Sweden with her husband named Gustav and their two daughters named Charlotta and Helena. Lillemor has just been noted by her landlord about the rent and has promised him that he will get it when Gustav returns, but when her spouse comes back home and has no money to pay for the rent Lillemor takes it upon herself to find a way to rescue her family from becoming homeless and does what she thinks is the only solution.

Subtly and finely directed by Swedish filmmaker Molly Hartleb, this finely tuned and somewhat fictional tale which is narrated mostly from the main character's point of view, draws an engaging portrayal of a Swedish woman who in her firm belief that she should support her own family and not ask the government for financial assistance when she is faced with eviction, makes a crucial choice that initiates her into a life of crime. While notable for it's prominent and naturalistic milieu depictions, fine cinematography by Danish cinematographer Erik Molberg Hansen, production design by Swedish production designer Ulrika von Vegesack and costume design by costume designer Sara Bertmann, this character-driven, narrative-driven and biographical story about a devoted mother, a sister of two brothers, a criminal who has served more than two decades in prison, a painter and an author who as a 16-year-old got pregnant, married and was prescribed with amphetamine by doctors depicts a heartrending and humane study of character and contains a timely score by composer Rasmus Hägg.

This somewhat romantic, at times humorous and conversational period drama which is set in the capital city of Sweden during the late 1960s and early 1970s and where a working-class woman becomes a prostitute and gets involved in an unfaithful relationship with the Minister of justice named Lennart Geijer and befriends a man named Klutis who introduces her to a new lifestyle at a nightclub called Ambassadeur where she meets a brothel madam named Doris Hopp, is impelled and reinforced by it's cogent narrative structure, substantial character development, subtle continuity, distinct atmosphere, perceptive depictions of Lillemor's relationship with her daughters, her mother who was a social democrat, politician and lawyer Lennart Geijer and a fellow inmate at the Hinseberg prison for women named Ella, the charming and vivid acting performance by Swedish actress Vera Vitali and the fine acting performances by Swedish actress Maria Kulle and Swedish actors Göran Ragnerstam and Joel Spira. A tangible, understated and good television film about a multifaceted person who caught the media's attention in the late 20th century.
