Not all battles are violent. Meet a courageous group of women who takes on both the male rulers of the day and a corrupt grocery industry. Savvy is their strategy and cans of healthy food are their weapons. The three hour drama series "Miss Friman's War" is a humorous and poignant story about friendship and fighting for your dreams. It addresses topics that are as relevant today as they were then: the demand for good, unspoiled food and the struggle for equal rights. Although "Miss Friman's War" is a work of fiction, the story is partly based on actual events around the all-female food co-op "Svenska Hem", which was founded long before women even had the right to vote.Written by
In Sweden equal and universal suffrage for women and men was decided on in the year 1919. The first election to be held after this was in the year 1921. Sweden was one of the first countries to have limited, national voting rights for women (during "the age of liberty", 1718-1772). See more »
Sweet but very cloying Hallmark type story done Swedish style
This series would not be out of place on channels like Hallmark. The story is sweet to the point of being cloying, and slightly nauseating at times. The predictability of events is obvious. It is reminiscent of a British period drama that deals with the usual moral dilemmas of rich vs poor, and men vs women. It just tries to cover too much ground, and sometimes the dialog is out of place with a particular scene but just stuck there to make some moral point. It probably is popular in Sweden but I doubt it would have a global level of popularity.
