Storyline

1970s, Sweden - Hard working farmer Agne (played by acclaimed actor Reine Brynolfsson) struggles with the harsh reality of his daily life, hoping his teenage son Klas will take over the farm and continue his legacy. Klas however, dreams of a world far away from this rural existence. Sumptuously lensed, this powerful coming of age story, written and directed by Jens Assur, paints a tangled web of shame, guilt, madness and the dreams of youth.

Not bad at all!
16 September 2020 | by panta-4See all my reviews

This is a great film to explain the existentialism. Well, that philosophical theory or approach emphasizes the existence of the individual person as a free and responsible agent determining their own development through acts of the will... and that is what our hero is lacking... balls to act willfully instead of following the elders who left him a burden of pressure to keep building what the family started. Dark and depressing tones set in a beautiful Scandinavian landscape just slowly build up to the tragic ending. Good acting, good directing but the script was a little bit loose, needs tidying up!
