Beautiful and touching
24 November 2003 | by editorlisaSee all my reviews

A subtle, touching film that harkens back to 1970's American auteur style of directing. Jimmy Karlson deftly creates complex characters and sets the film against the backdrop of an important time in Sweden's (and the world's history). Magnus Krepper is wonderful as the lead. Definitely worth seeing!
