Critic Reviews for The Last Sentence
Unfortunately, Troell chose to shoot the movie in digital black-and-white; the imagery seems anachronistic in its precision, undermining the period decor and clashing with the occasional low-grain newsreel footage of Nazis on the march.
Troell invokes '50's and '60's Swedish cinema: masterly black-and-white cinematography, philosophical angst, a lifeless marriage and loved ones visiting from the afterlife.
It's a thoughtful and workmanlike portrait, but a less than profoundly moving one.
Amazingly, Troell still operates his own camera. "The Last Sentence" was made digitally, and his attention to detail is remarkable.
The great 83-year-old Swedish director Jan Troell specializes in movies about men of great stature in furious conflict with both their countries and themselves.
