The doctor's watch has a date window, but the only wristwatch with a date window available in 1945 was the then newly introduced Rolex Datejust. The doctor's watch has a square case and is clearly not a Datejust. See more »

Unbelieveable. A talented Swedish comedy
11 February 2004 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

In December 1945 a train leaves the central station of Stockholm for Berlin. There aren't much left when it arrives. Not of the train and not of some passengers.

This is a black comedy directed by Peter Dalle and acted like they used to act in the 40s and also photographed (in b/w) like they used to during that period. The actors must have had lots of fun making it. They aren't much of characters, like they weren't in the 40s, but the story is well narrated and everybody has timing.

A deadly black and deadly funny film. See it, if you didn't think the Swedes were capable of humour.
