      Marit Risto F A stunningly beautiful tribute to Sweden Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/20/24 Full Review Audience Member House of Angels is the name of the great house and its estate, which suddenly finds itself without an owner when Erik Zander (played by Per Oscarsson) dies at the beginning of the movie. Then they most believe that there is no heir to the house will take most for granted that the village's big farmer Axel Flogfält (Sven Wollter) will buy the house at auction. In the midst of the funeral so doing, however, Fanny (Helena Bergström) entrance of the church, and there is also the starting point for a lot of reactions from the village's permanent residents who shun change, and people who do not remain within the village's standards. Fanny and Zack (Richard Wolff) - the film's main characters are all inhabitants of the village really dread over and decadence is reinforced by the fact that the couple come directly from Berlin, where they have just spent their last Cabaret, "Carribian by Night" Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member En klassiker. Veldig fin og koselig film. 2ern: Fin den og, men litt mer dramatisk (3). Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Erik Zander writes his last will, chooses a nice and peaceful place for his grave and gets killed right afterwards. Nobody in the little Swedish village he lives in, seems to be awfully sorry to see him dead. The contrary. Erik was a loner, but incredibly wealthy. And since he lived alone and had no relatives, everyone waits for the auction to get a piece of his big property, for little money. You can imagine their disappointment, when Fanny (Helena Bergström) shows up at the funeral and declares herself as Erik's Granddaughter. She and her companion Zac (Rikard Wolff) are different. They are open-minded, open-hearted, loud and they scare the shit out of the conservative people with just being like they are. Everyone hopes they will go back to where they come from, but Fanny and Zac do not show the slightest inclination to do so. The people see Fanny and Zac as the freaks, who just disturb the peace in the little village, but of course everyone has more than one corpse to hide in the closet. It is just the "fear of the unknown", that makes them start the "Third World War" against Fanny and Zac. Fanny soon seduces some inhabitants, who just can't resist talking with her and spending time in her company. She is not willing to give in easily, without trying to change the attitude of the ones who seem to hate her. "If they want to talk, I'll give them something to talk about." If you have ever felt like you are the only one of your kind and like you don't belong, you will understand this movie very well. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member This is one of these movies that every Swede should watch, I hadn't. Now I have. My sister turns to me in an exited voice: "wasn't it the best movie you have ever seen?" Honestly it wasn't, but that's a pretty big statement. In fact it was a really great movie. A very classic Swedish story of an outsider coming in to an isolated small-town society and stirring up the dust. I think the fear of the unknown is something all Swedes suffer from in some extent and that's why there are so many movies on that topic. This one is remarkable because the extreme differences of the outsiders and the towns people and how a "normal" person should be.
