Audience Reviews for Appelkriget


I saw this about 7 times at the local art house near Portland State U. back in the 70's. The 1st 2/3s are pure brilliance. 5 star. The only word in English is "salesmanship" and its in a great scene. The last 1/3rd brings in Swedish folk tales. 3 and 1/2 stars. Good and if you're Swedish or have Swedish blood in your family, it makes it better to know the stories behind the scenes. In Sweden, it won best film, director and actress. I understand that after the film maker died, the family fued over $$$ has meant that the film is not shown, or on vhs or dvd. Our loss, this was a great film. Maybe someday I'll get to see it again.
