terrorist in disguise lives w/ minister´s family
10 February 1999 | by Charlott-2See all my reviews

Great photo, great acting, very good story about a country close to a civil war in the 1910´s. The socialist terrorists plant a bombman in the summer house of an unpopular minister. One of the best films ever made in Sweden.
