Political filmmaking about the morally superior country Sweden
18 March 2017 | by davidajgpSee all my reviews

This film sparked my interest from the get go with a highly controversial story. Right of the bat I should say that I'm Swedish and this is a film critiques my own country from a Polish perspective. I was worried that director was going to push his own opinions down the audiences throat. Which fortunately didn't happened. This is a film I strongly recommended to people interested governments role in ethics. Hopefully this film will bring up the debate about how sometimes Sweden's supposedly morally superior system also has some really big problems.
