it happened in the wake of the hippie era
30 May 2019 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

Its a psycology drama, based on the incident that happened in stockholm 1973, were a heist went badly wrong, and the hostages as time went by, befriended the culprits.

its hard for me to swallow, all these swedish and norwegian actors, gobbling english like a turkey on the loose, so im sorry to say i lost the ignition already from the start.the story are familliar to many, and could have been better told than this.

the grumpy old man awards just 5 stars for this flick.
