Storyline

Torgny Segerstedt was one of the leading journalists in Sweden in the 20th century. He fought a one man battle against Hitler and the Nazi regime until his death in 1945 and during these tumultuous times his private life was marked by a world in chaos, as he falls in love with his friend's wife while married himself. THE LAST SENTENCE weaves together the story of a psychological love story with a portrayal of the political situation Sweden found itself in during the Second World War. A gripping, dramatic and poetic tale about a man, who could not be silenced. Written by Filmlance International

"Reverent, enigmatic and atmospheric..."
25 January 2013 | by SindreKaspersenSee all my reviews

Swedish cinematographer, screenwriter and director Jan Troell's thirteenth feature film which he co-wrote with Danish screenwriter Klaus Rifbjerg, is based on a biography about Swedish publicist Torgny Segerstedt from 2007 which was written by Swedish writer, actor and director Kenne Fant. It premiered at the 23rd Stockholm International Film Festival in 2012, was shot on location in Luleå, Gothenburg and Stockholm in Sweden and is a Sweden-Norway co-production which was produced by Swedish producer Francy Suntinger. It tells the story about Torgny Segerstedt, an editor-in-chief of a daily newspaper called Göteborgs Handels- och Sjöfartstidning who lives in Gothenburg with his wife Puste, their daughter Ingrid and his three dogs. Torgny is a strong opposer of the reigning regime in Germany which is questioned by many and he often attends upper-class parties with Puste who mostly stays in the background and observes him and his lover Maja Forssman.

Precisely and brilliantly directed by Swedish filmmaker Jan Troell, this finely tuned biographical story which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from the main character's point of view, draws a mindful portrayal of a Swedish theologian in his late fifty's and his relationship with his Norwegian wife, a married Jewish woman and his somewhat lonely battle against the German national socialism. While notable for its naturalistic and distinct milieu depictions, distinct black-and-white cinematography by Jan Troell and Swedish cinematographer Mischa Gavrjusjov, production design by Swedish production designers Pernilla Olsson and Peter Bävman, fine costume design by Swedish costume designer Katja Watkins, editing by Jan Troell and film editor Ulrika Rang and use of sound, this character-driven and historic drama depicts a nuanced and involving study of character and contains a great score by Norwegian composer Gaute Storaas.

This tangible, romantic, political and conversational tale about a truly dedicated anti-Nazi who some thought would jeopardize the national security of Sweden due to his outspoken publications about Nazism and possibly drag his country into the war, is set in West Sweden before and during the Second World War in the 1930s and early 1940s and is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, substantial character development, quick-witted dialog and the remarkable acting performances by Danish actor Jesper Christensen, Swedish actress and director Pernilla August, Swedish actress Ulla Skoog and Swedish actor Björn Granath. A reverent, enigmatic and atmospheric narrative feature which gained, among other awards, the award for Best Director Jan Troell at the 36th Montreal World Film Festival in 2012.
