An eccentric millionaire dies at a manor in Dalarna in Sweden, leaving behind three sons and a mistress. One of four parallel stories about parents and children. Four sides of Sweden. Four shades of brown.
"A visual association game into Ingmar Bergman's most sacred secrets. A pop video that tries to link Bergman's work by lending, mirroring, cropping, replicating, making a caricature. A homage to one of today's truly great image maker."
In a small mining community in Northern Sweden, a group of youngsters about to take the leap in the adult age fight with themselves and the world around, while the ground literally trembles under their feet.
Sebastian Hiort af Ornäs,
Finally a Swedish film that says something interesting.
Many people dislike this film. It's weird. Strange acting, surrealistic surroundings and a story that really doesn't seem to matter that much to anybody. This film tries to say something about how people feel today, about themselves. And the result is a striking lack essence. It's difficult to make a movie about genuine emptiness, it just isn't that visual. But this is a daring attempt to comment about something that so difficult to grasp and describe, but yet the mentality of a generation.
