Malmö, Sweden during the Second World War. Stig is a 15 year old pupil on the verge of adulthood. Viola is 37 years old and his teacher. He is attracted by her beauty and maturity. She is drawn to him by his youth and innocence, a god-sent relief from her drunk and miserable husband. They start a passionate and forbidden relationship - but it has consequences they never could have expected.Written by

It took six years of screen-writing for Bo Widerberg before production started. The project was announced in 1988, but because of the lack of co-financiers, besides the Swedish Film Institute, it was postponed till 1994. See more »

A beautiful film
I touches you, moves you and the imagery and music is fantastic. even though it could be perceived as risqué in America, Europe raises no eyebrows of the imagery or hinted developments. The eyebrows are raised by the deeper thread and cross-human references. Who has not been attracted to someone they shouldn't - an authority. And what has this brought along with it? Will the authority fall or will your image and strength of life expand building upon newer degrees of intensity?
I realise that it can be difficult to follow the film, if you do not speak Swedish (or any Scandinavian language), but this should not deter you from seeing this film.
