This is a great movie, and for Hellström's fans, this is heaven
21 July 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie can be seen on different levels:

1. You don't know about Håkan Hellström, or maybe you dislike his music = You will probably enjoy the movie anyway.

2. You think Hellström is good or at least pretty good, and know some of his songs = You will think this movie is fantastic.

3. You are a HUGE fan of Håkan = You will be in heaven.

I knew it before even seeing the movie for the first time, at the world premier, that "Känn ingen sorg" would be my new favourite movie. As a huge fan of this man and his music, I found so many references to Håkan's lyrics and life that I was overwhelmed.

"Känn ingen sorg" is a very emotional movie. One very positive thing with this film is that the "emotions" does not only consist of happy love and kisses in the moonlight. "Känn ingen sorg" is just as tragic as happy.

Watch this extremely well made film. Follow Pål Gullberg, aka Håkan Hellström, on his way through the Swedish summer, through Gothenburg. And follow Eva (Disa Sjöstrand), the sexiest character to ever appear in a movie.
