Director Blom has proved she can do much better than this.
The director and scriptwriter Maria Blom, who directed the Swedish master piece "Masjävlar" here made an unbelievable mistake. The characters are so exaggerated that hardly no one can recognize them, whether it is the subclass Blom wants to portray or the wider, upper middle class she obviously seeks to charm. A fine character actress, like Gunilla Nyroos, suddenly turns into a Puppet on a String under Bloms direction. That is misuse of this most talented actress. Responsible for this is Blom, who has earlier proved she can do much better than this.
