The Bomber (2001)


Pretty average crime/thriller based upon Liza Marklunds novel directed by Colin Nutley with a laughable villain at the center of the story. The beginning minutes are powerful though and the movie is competent enough to warrant a watch, but don't think it will have a lasting impression.

Saraband (2003)


Yes, I know it really is a Television Movie and technically not a movie, but since it did have an American Film premiere and was directed by Ingmar Bergman it deserves to be on this list. It can also be seen as a sort-of sequel to "Scenes from a Marriage" even if no one has confirmed it (but the main characters are played by the same actors and has the same names)

Autobiographical drama based upon Bergman's wife and regarded as Bergman's final film.

Evil (2003)


Dark drama based upon the self experiences of writer Jan Guillou. It is gripping stuff that has some similarities to "Fanny & Alexander" in atmosphere but where in that film we had a priest doing psychological terror here we have an entire school class. Deservedly nominated for an Academy Award and sent Michael Håfström to Hollywood

Johan Falk no. 3 and the final movie in the first set of movies making the trilogy complete. The first three movies were directed by Anders Nilsson but the character was too popular to be let to rest so new movies arrives later on, but then as direct-to-DVD releases and with different directors.

The modern Swedish films are made for a huge audience but has ended up becoming somewhat formulatic with a lot of romantic films, comedies and especially crime films that look and feel the same. Fortunately there has been some exceptions where a film change the rules and becomes an instant box office hit and classic, but it will be interesting to see in 20-30 years which other more minor film will be remembered and which will be forgotten.

Yes! At last! We can finally skip Ingmar Bergman.
But Swedish cinema still sucks. It always has done.
