The Best Swedish movie ever made!
30 December 1999 | by Galahad-7See all my reviews

This master piece went straight to my heart. The performances of Josefin Nilsson and Bjorn Kjellman took the art of acting to another level. Not to forget Reine Brynolfsson´s wonderful character as Adam´s older brother. I just loved it. One of the best movies I´ve ever seen.
