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.
A more sophisticated work than it appears about a man whose life was more complicated than the world knew.
A decidedly noncommercial film about the courage of a newspaperman who was a real contrast to the inside-the-beltway hacks of today, anxious to justify every war that comes along.
This well-intentioned tale never breaks free from a dry and visually anemic history lesson that could easily be adapted into a monotonous stage play.
With "The Last Sentence," veteran Swedish director Jan Troell serves up a well-mannered biography of a man known for anything but his restraint.
Exposes iconic anti-Nazi Swede's feet of clay-- a tangled personal life. Nuanced character study is a challenge to conventional portraits of heroism and challenging to watch.
Ultimately, The Last Sentence, despite the great performances and awesome visuals, gets too preoccupied with its own interpersonal drama and soap opera dynamics, eventually forgetting to address some of the bigger moral implications it hints at.
An unusually balanced, seemingly unbiased biopic. The cast can't be faulted in any way.
