The film tries to describe the relationship between the dominant Jari, who calls himself "Il Capitano", and his more mature "soldier" Minna, that develops into mutual dependence.

Troell can do better
22 November 2001 | by charliek-1See all my reviews

Slow and boring film about a triple murder that took place in Sweden 1988. Based on real events that is but it´s impossible to say how realistic the film is as most of the film portrays the two people alone and who does really know what happened to them. Jan Troell is a much better director than he proves to be in this film.
