      Audience Member Edda Magnason is good as the leading protagonist, but the film is just cliched & so-so. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member I didn't know much about her or the other famous people shown in the film, but it was a delight to get to know them (well the movie them), and also see how there is usually alot of pain in people like her. I can imagine she's not the only one feeling and acting like this. I'm glad I watched it. The quality, picture and acting was really good. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member ??????? ??????? ???? ?? ??? ????????? ?????? ?, ???? ??????????? ? ?? Bill Evans... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I give this one a 10 out of 10. the singing alone makes this film worth watching. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member She's hardly known outside Northern Europe, but the worn-out expression "icon" is relevant in this part of the world for Monica Zetterlund. And they couldn't find anyone better for that role than Edda Magnason. It's almost scary sometimes. But this is also in big parts a celebration of the 60s before Beatles and the hippies; an era we're quite in love with now. Both we who were where and those of you who weren't. That's why the anachronisms are disturbing , and so is the fact that the story is not chronical and Monica's daughter never gets older during these 10-15 years. The concept is well-known. Trying to be loved by the father, demands on yourself destroying you, the romantic destructive life of the artist. It's been seen so many times, and script writer Peter Birro should try to distance himself from fiction and turn to the life of Monica instead. But much can be forgiven, thanks to Edda Magnason.
