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 »

Moving and thought-provoking !
Watched this movie for the second time and it is a movie that stays a long time in your thoughts. The acting was splendid and third-dimensional. Also, no-one was wholly black or white, all had redeeming features and contributed to a wonderful depiction of the mores of that time.
