Storyline

Katarina is 20 years old. With a troubled past in a dreary suburb, her life seems to be already set in stone - until she discovers music. Everything changes when she hears a performance of Mozart's Requiem at the Gothenburg Concert Hall that sends her reeling and opens up a beautiful new world. She feels that she has to change her life and get as far away from her ugly reality as possible. But the path she has to follow proves a treacherous one, filled with lies, betrayal and a dangerous liaison with the married conductor Adam. Yet Katarina is ready to do anything to gain her new identity. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Near the end of the movie, Katarina goes to the library and asks for "Rachmaninoff's piano concerto, with Richter." She finds a seat and plays the CD. The audio is not Rachmaninoff though, but Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A major (K. 622). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Katarina: [wearing headphones listening to Mozart] We don't have all the time in the world. You shouldn't waste life, so the only thing that happens is that your pussy gets slack. The first time I heard Mozart was on YouTube. That's nearly a year ago. I was searching for some stupid clip, and suddenly I was captivated - by the music. Since then, they can't touch me. They can take their cocks and their ugly lives and say what they want. I don't care. I'm not there anymore. In some bloody way ...

Very strong argument
28 December 2016 | by Ricardo SacaduraSee all my reviews

Despite not being totally recent, this movie has captured my curiosity not only by the synopsis but also by the fact that it is led by one of my favourite artists (and recently awarded an Oscar for best actress in a supporting role) Alicia Vikander, it was good to see the actress in her most genuine "form" by the fact that she spokes in her home language- Swedish.

The truth is that I did not knew (or knew very vaguely) the Swedish cinema however, after having seen this film I can say that it have exceeded my expectations, expectations such that, I confess, were not very high given that I didn't knew the director.

What I can say is that I really loved both the argument (produced this also by Lisa Langseth) as the story developed around the same. Referring to other components of the production I can enhance the quality of the interpretations and the whole soundtrack chosen and produced for the film, soundtrack that I am listen attentively while I am writing this review.

In relation to the plot in particular I have to say that I loved it! The changes in the character of Katarina thrill anyone minimally wrapped in the story; how the protagonist excels itself leaving behind a life unworthy and unhappy to build gradually her space in society is indeed remarkable and worthy of being highlighted. To conclude I can only say that I really liked it! Excellent job of production and an argument very emotive, it is without doubt a great message and I advise anyone to watch it.
