Exaggerated Communist propaganda film, 10 November 2011
Author: Hockhult from Sweden

This movie is loosely based on historic events. These events of 1931 is still romanticized in lore with Swedish left wing groups. This film is aimed at the new wave of communists in the 1960's. The movie was a smash hit with it's target audience. Some claim this to be almost a documentary, using this movie as a revisionist falsification of history. The story told is all out favored by the communist side, with a lot of exaggeration on events and violence. With the communist being the good side fighting and suffering for justice. While the state and the "capitlists" are mostly a one dimensional evil force. The story does not bother to mention that the "evil force" where in reality trying to keep democracy in Sweden and not to become another Sub-Soviet dictatorship. The movie in itself is not that good and the sound is awful, at times I can't make out what is being said.
