Very nice cinematography, but a boring story
7 August 2005 | by LembrowskiSee all my reviews

Colin Nutley, pretty famous Englishman who have watched the Swedish way of life and put it on the screen for about 20 years, has now done an English version of his first big hit movie Änglagård (1992). His in real life wife Helena Bergström plays the lead (as usual!), and the acting is through the whole cast are quite good. But the story is not engaging and for many moments quite boring. Nutley spreads out the story in a couple of treads, that he doesn't really tie together in the end. Jens Fischers cinematography is what's great about this movie, and it is sometimes breathtaking. But this movie i a big step forward for Nutley after the worthless Liza Marklund-movies.
