Description
View Trailer HERE

In Swedish with English subtitles. Torgny Segerstedt was a leading Swedish newspaper editor whose ferocious public opposition to Hitler and Nazism caused controversy when his country adopted an official position of neutrality during World War II. Master filmmaker Jan Troell (The Emigrants, Everlasting Moments) weaves together a lyrical drama exploring the complex politics of Sweden and Europe in the 1930s and '40s, as well as the personal contradictions of this firebrand journalist, particularly in regard to the women in his life. Jesper Christensen stars as Segerstedt, a commanding and often provocative personality in the world’s eye, but one who could be maddeningly equivocal in relationships with his wife Puste (Ulla Skoog), his mistress Maja (Pernilla August) and his daughter Ingrid (Yohanna Troell). A film director who also operates his own camera, Troell creates an incisive portrait of a turbulent history as well as a poetic juxtaposition of physical nature’s constancy and human nature’s flaws.
