Review

A period piece from Sweden shot in very pretty colour, and directed by Jarl Kulle, an actor who has appeared in some distinguished Scandanavian films (Dear John, for example). Kulle also takes a supporting role in this story of a lifelong bachelor who falls for a mysterious widow, whose opulent past is reflected in his new life-style when they marry. the contrast between the bookseller's new-found decadence and the rich warmth of his lazy former life is uncomfortably well presented, forming a bitter-sweet, multi-layered offering with the accent slightly on the bitter.
