A well-done movie, which I enjoyed watching; most of all I was enchanted by the terrific acting of Ernst Günther. However, as it kept rolling and the anti-capitalistic message became more evident I lost interest in the main story. In a way, it's not unique in that sense since most Swedish (as well as many other European) films I have seen from the 60s are of the same political color. I am sure it must have been more interesting in its time since it deals with a political issue which is not up for discussion today, but at the end it came across as just simply annoying to me; how can capitalism be blamed for the reason that a couple wasted money on a house they didn't own, and their incapability to take legal actions?
