Widerberg's ability to capture the passions in the situation is undeniable.
This is a wonderful film with intriguing script, good acting, and playful yet serious story with consequences for all. Johan Widerberg as the young man Stig is outstanding. You can watch his maturity, adult wisdom, and general sensitivity blossom as the movie progresses. This movie is rather long, and at times rather slow, but I was really taken in by the whole drama. Nice piece of work...
[font=Century Gothic]"All Things Fair" takes place in 1943 in Malmo, Sweden where Stig(Johan Widerberg) is a high school student from Stockholm who works at the concessions of a movie theatre. His older brother, Sigge(Bjorn Kjellman), is in the navy and an aspiring boxer. Amongst his classmates, Stig is not alone in being infinitely curious about sex while having very little knowledge about the subject.(The boys and girls are educated separately.) He does form a bond with his new teacher, Viola(Marika Lagercrantz), who is also from Stockholm but they go beyond propriety during a makeout session in the map room.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"All Things Fair" takes on a controversial subject in a provocative manner. The film gets off to a promising start; features some good relationships and character development but drags on too long towards at least a few promised endings before coming to a halt. It best serves as an argument against single sex education.[/font]
