Interesting but faltering
28 April 2019 | by Morten_5See all my reviews

Documentary "Superswede" portrays the life of Swedish Formula 1 star Ronnie Peterson and the golden era in Formula 1 racing.

The film gives a nice picture of Peterson and his life from childhood to his death at Monza in Milano at the age of 34. There are some interesting old photography of Peterson and his family and the interviews with a bunch of Formula 1 legends (including Niki Lauda) are quite touching and rewarding, but the film lacks pace and never really reaches the potential of the story it's telling, a little like Ronnie himself.
