Perfection at its finest
7 August 2017 | by (Boårs, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Even for a swede as me the story and history that this film brings up took me by big surprise. And not only that the cinematography, story, acting, well just everything was a solid 10 for me!!

And to be honest, I don't watch that many Swedish films as I usually prefer English speaking films from Britten and America. But this, this you just have to see. A true masterpiece from the writer/director Amanda Kernell and everyone else behind this piece of cinematic perfection!
