Very good...but not one of the best episodes.
20 August 2011 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Cinema Europe" was a wonderful mini-series about the history of pre-WWII European cinema. The first episode is an overview and later ones focus on particular nations that made the bulk of the European films. Perhaps my begin less thrilled with this particular episode of "Cinema Europe: The Other Hollywood" might be because of all the silents in the series, the Swedish ones are my least favorite. However, I really think my less enthusiastic reaction might be because so few films were discussed in this one compared to the other episodes. It could be that few of the films exist today--as silents were made on very volatile nitrate stock--which tended to turn to dust or goo or explode! Whatever the reason, I think I had already seen all but two of the films talked about in this episode--so there really wasn't anything new or interesting to someone who has seen many of the Swedish and Danish films. However, for someone not familiar with their work, the show does give a decent overview of the Swedish Film Industry and some of their more important works.
