An eccentric millionaire dies at a manor in Dalarna in Sweden, leaving behind three sons and a mistress. One of four parallel stories about parents and children. Four sides of Sweden. Four shades of brown.
"A visual association game into Ingmar Bergman's most sacred secrets. A pop video that tries to link Bergman's work by lending, mirroring, cropping, replicating, making a caricature. A homage to one of today's truly great image maker."
Finally a Swedish film that says something interesting.
Many people dislike this film. It's weird. Strange acting, surrealistic surroundings and a story that really doesn't seem to matter that much to anybody. This film tries to say something about how people feel today, about themselves. And the result is a striking lack essence. It's difficult to make a movie about genuine emptiness, it just isn't that visual. But this is a daring attempt to comment about something that so difficult to grasp and describe, but yet the mentality of a generation.
