First I'd like to say I'm Swedish, so I might be a bit biased, but to be honest I was born in the 90s and only started watching Formula 1 in 2015 and never really knew much about Ronnie until recently.

For me, this movie is problably only rivaled by the Senna movie when it comes to Formula 1 movies. From the start to the finish this movie manages to make me feel joyful yet terribly sad when watching the life of Ronnie and Barbro and the things they went through from the late 60's to the 70's. It's beautifully made and with so many high profile former Formula 1 drivers giving their perspective it feels really humbling to my modest Swedish ears.

My only real complaints is that I'd like it to have been longer and entierly spoken in English to reach a broader audience. But honestly, it's probably 70% English and I would definitely recommend this movie. Not only to F1 fans, but people interested in racing in general.
