Creator of ELVIRA MADIGAN, Bo Widerberg, presents a poetic depiction of Sweden in 1931 as the country is torn apart by labor unrest. The story concentrates on a young worker whose family is near poverty during the strike. He loves his boss's daughter, but the relationship ends when her

father brings in scabs to work the factory. In a scene reminiscent of the slaughter on the Odessa Steps in POTEMKIN, government troops close in on a peaceful striker's march and open fire, creating a bloodbath. The brutality ends the strike, but also spells doom for the current government as

citizens embrace social democracy. A powerful documentary-style film with many rewarding moments. Nominated by the Academy for Best Foreign Film.
